I am lucky that I have quite a few items on my "Cool Stuff I Have Seen or Done List." I have seen Mikhail Baryshnikov and Karen Kain dance, The Nutcracker by the Bolshoi, seen art by Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Bernini that made me weepy.
Last night's performance by Paul McCartney is definitely going in that list. How cool is it to witness and be part of this legendary person. I am not a fanatic music or Beatles fan, but you don't need to be one to fully appreciate this very affable Brit.
He may be 70, but this doesn't stop him from giving a fantastic (and long) performance (2 encores with 4 or 5 songs each time, I think). At the end, he finally had to say, "you know, we're all going to have to go home sometime."
Read the reviews, but it is the best concert I have ever been to.

There are still some who thinks that Craft Fairs are about granny knitted toilet paper covers (not that there's anything wrong with that). Not so. Many of the items at CircleCraft 2012 are high quality works of art.
