There was a time when Mike and I used to go see bands pretty much every weekend. Mike was in a band at the time, and a lot of our friends are in bands too. We try to go out and support our friends’ bands as much as we can. There is nothing quite like seeing live music! It’s a bit harder for us now because we live in Santa Barbara and a lot of our musician friends are in LA, so we don’t get out to see them as much now as we used to. And I am completely kicking myself- hard– because I didn’t take all that many pictures at the time. ARGH! Note to self: take more pictures! Note to YOU too if you are reading this: take more pictures! And scrapbook them, or at least put them in albums. You probably take a lot of things about your life for granted now. There will come a time when your life will change, maybe even change drastically, and if you do not take pictures now you might regret it later.
So, yeah, for some reason we have pictures of us at this venue in Los Angeles called “The Garage” but we have no photos of the band at all. Go figure. Why did we not take a photo of the band? DUH! But, at least from my paper journal I was able to figure out where exactly we were and which band we saw that night. Cool. Gotta love having a journal! Gotta love having a scrapbook even more. Awhile back I wrote an article called “Why I think Scrapbooking is an Essential Hobby For Women”. I could go on at length about this topic- how much we forget over time and how important it is to keep track of your memories, especially the things you want to remember.
