Rave for Bruce

It was just so typically high-school, so gratingly girl.  I used to hesitate to tell people I liked/loved/obsessed over Bruce Springsteen, and only my sister could really understand my level of devotion — because she shared it. Yet, even now, 25 years after I first discovered him, his music feels like a letter written straight to me, and he has always showcased an America I could not see myself, with my sheltered sunshine life — but I felt it, in his songs.  He is the premier American Storyteller, and I am grateful for the emotion he always brings with his words.

Even though all his fans feel this way, I still adore the Boss, and I have shamelessly indoctrinated Shun and Kana, with videos and music, dancing and air guitar sessions.  Hope to see this documentary some time, from Darkness on the Edge of Town.
