I recently had the opportunity to see my favorite Artist Fiona Apple live. I was somewhat nervous about this because I have been to many concerts and sometimes what they sound like on the album is not what you get at the concert. Sometimes the sound is right but the artist just doesn't bring the performance in a way that makes seeing them live something special. I have had Fiona Apple's music on such a pedestal for so many years that I was afraid of the idea that a bad performance would somehow degrade my ability to love each album so very thoroughly. Her music has been such a huge part of my life that it scared me. I thought she would be great but just had the worry in the back of my mind. However, she wasn't great...the word just fails to describe the performance. She was everything and so much more than I imagined she could be. It wasn't just her voice, it was the pure delivery of it. As if every fiber of her being has somehow teleported to the headspace she was in at the time of writing the song and we were privy to an intimate moment of raw emotion in the throws of it's simultanious conception and abortion. This may all sound crazy but man o' man I just really can't describe it. I left feeling so very inspired that I have just had non-stop creative energy going ever since. It has only been like 2 weeks since this happened but best afterglow ever!

Thanks. I just began my account with Deviantart. I will be adding more and creating my profile bit by bit over the next week or so as school work allows. Thank you for taking a look.
