Five Long Years

I am the king of countdowns. Every morning when I wake up I am counting the hours until one event or another, usually a trip. For the past five years I have been counting down to an unknown date, one I wasn’t even certain would ever come to pass. People have called me crazy, stoned and a flat-out burnout for waiting so patiently. I thought the day might never come.

In a little over twenty four hours the moment I have been waiting five long years for will finally be upon me. After the twelve hour drive my younger brother and I are setting out on, we will arrive in Hampton, Virginia and the moment will be upon us.

After five years…five long years………..all is right in the world.

Phish is back.
