A Long Awaited Evening with Anne Murray

Monday evening, after waiting a lifetime, I finally had the pleasure of seeing Anne Murray in concert! Having grown up with her music, a wave of emotion with a high water level moment overcame me when walked out on stage.

Being present, in the same room, while she sunge Could I Have This Dance, You Needed Me, Daydream Believer, Danny’s Song, and, of course, Snowbird was amazing. A dream come true.

I find nothing more inspiring than watching someone do something with still so much passion after forty years – her voice, her confidence, the way she commands the stage, her joking with the audience. Inspiring.

What inspires you?

(The night was made a wee bit sweeter by Vancouver beating Ottawa’s standing ovation for Anne. Yes!)

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

Definitely a treasured memory, especially if it is her last tour. Bittersweet in a way.
