I wanted to reflect back to you a few snippets from your opening night performance. Sometimes I heard more than I could jot down (including the entire section about the mighty Columbia!), but this is most of what I heard:
” … next best thing … my beautiful city … geometry of this earth … worship … danger of the water … I believe salvation lies at the end of your hook captain … civic salmon symbol … mighty Columbia … swelling fat delta … the next best thing … “
I wish I could convey to you the feeling of expectation and anticipation and generosity that I felt among the crowd on the bridge, everyone straining towards you, and the palpable relief when the wind would send a few words our way. Maybe I am romanticizing it a bit, but that seems appropriate, doesn’t it?
