Maybe I'm Amazed

Maya (grinning ear to ear as Paul launched into the first song of the night): Pinch me, Mom! PINCH ME!

We saw Paul McCartney (PAUL McCARTNEY!) at the BOK Center in Tulsa Thursday night. Our seats were nearly nosebleed and steeper than a cow's face, but it was fun. So much fun! So many GREAT songs! Blackbird! Rita! Mr. Kite! Hey Jude sing-a-long! Explosions! Helter Skelter! Double encore! Maya wanted to rush the stage and give him a big ol' kiss for playing Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da. He absolutely rawked. our. faces. off. I can see now how a person could keep going back to see him over and over (and over), because at the end of the night, I was ready to go again.

Oh, and I did pinch her.

Number nine

Today is the birthday of writer, illustrator Maya McBride, born in Bartlesville, Oklahoma (2004). She composed her first story, 'The Owl in the Night Time', at age three. This was followed a few years later by the beloved Jorn and Rona series, stories about a boy and his adventures with his imaginary kangaroo friend. More recently, she has added poetry to her writings. She is best known for saying, "Ooh! Jellybean macaroni with cheese on the cob! My favorite!" Also on this day, some other stuff happened.

Be well, do good work, and keep in touch.®
