Back home after exciting adventures in Berkeley. Gio got tickets to the sold out Arcade Fire concert at the Greek Amphitheater. I had many concerns (yes, fears) but agreed to give it a try. Standing in a crowded amphitheater for five, six hours sounded daunting. Even though I love Arcade Fire. But happy endings! They had accessible seating! We had great seats, yes seats, so I got to sit as much as I wanted and could stand for the songs that I really enjoyed. Hurrah!
The podcast this week will feature tips and tricks we learned for attending concerts. I'd love to hear any of your stories. And I had a thought because out of 8,000 people, only about 10-15 used the accessible seating. So, I wondered if we made disability more socially acceptable, would services be more or less accessible?
Just a thought. Because I know there were other people like me out there, being punk rock in the general areas because asking for help is a tough wall to climb sometimes.
Lots of material for the podcast this week. Hopefully I get to record tomorrow.
Oh, and first night away from Ian forever. So about three years since I slept without kids around. I slept until 10am. Sleep is good!
