this is for my mom. .


Because I got a message from her last night that was just a muffled voice singing for about 3 minutes and then a loud roar of a crowd. It wasn't until about half way through that I remembered she was at a Bruce Springsteen concert. I love the image of my mom holding up her cell phone at a concert so I could kind of be there with her. Even though I talked to her today and she told me that was actually for my good friend who she knows loves Bruce and who she also knows is going through a hard time right now. "You didn't erase the message did you? That was for him!" Like most people I think my mom's the smartest, funniest, wisest person I know and this just made me love her more. She's a jersey girl by way of Italy and and she's got a giant crush on Bruce Springsteen. We also talked about that amazing book, Eat, Pray, Love - which she's in the middle of right now and just loves. Of course she does, she's my mom.
