after the show has ended and most of the venue patrons have migrated back to the bar area, i linger amongst the stage hands and sound guys eagerly awaiting my opportunity to confess my love for the jams. i felt surprised to find i was having the most casual and composed conversation i'd ever had with a musician i adored, i was loving every second of it. so much, that later on in the evening i approached the lead singer again to see if she would like to hit the photobooth with me?? she complied. and i thought i was going to explode! during this picture perfect moment in my mind, i asked her for a kiss! she seemed confused and rightly so. i said that i didn't mean like a french one, just a cheeky one, for the camera. she politely said she was spoken for and i said whoops. and sorry. i was pulled in by the gravity of a star. and while my orbit in that particular space and time was short-lived, i felt golden in the universe.
