Today is April 18th, and had all gone according to plan I would have seen John Mayer performing in Providence tonight. I had tickets, and I was looking forward to the show. But just days after I bought the tickets, he announced the cancellation of the tour. His granuloma had returned.
My personal disappointment is great, but his must be so much greater. How horrible to be a singer-songwriter and not be able to do such a large part of what defines you. So I am listening to his albums tonight and wishing him well.
Pain throws your heart to the ground.
Love turns the whole thing around.
No, it won’t all go the way it should,
But I know the heart of life is good.
from “The Heart of Life”
