I was in the kitchen yesterday when “Here, There and Everywhere” came on XM out in the living room. As the opening strains floated out to where I was standing I was suddenly overtaken by the thought: “I miss Paul!” And it’s true — both in the physical and the abstract sense. In the abstract I have not been paying much attention to the Beatles lately. This, as I’ve mentioned before, is what happens when I’m pregnant. My brain is consumed by other things and the Beatles go to the back burner. So I miss Paul’s daily presence in my home. But there’s also the physical sense — it has been a long time since I spent any time with Paul. The last time I saw him in person was 17 months ago. It will be much later this year, if at all, that I have another opportunity to see him. While I’m grateful there’s at least a possibility it will happen, it still sort of bites, considering if I had my way he’d be living in my garage giving a concert a day for my own personal edification and amusement.
It did just occur to me, however, that I have the DVD of the last tour in my cabinet and I have not watched it yet. It’s a poor substitute but better than none at all. I guess I will have to haul it out tomorrow and take a walk down memory lane.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
