I'm flying out to San Francisco on Sunday morning to attend the Bridge School's benefit concert {founded by Mr. Neil Young, aka Harvest Moon}. All proceeds go to benefit the Bridge School who has a compelling list of beliefs on their website:
  • Everyone should have the opportunity to achieve his or her maximal potential.
  • Everyone should have the opportunity to share knowledge, express feelings and be heard.
  • Everyone should actively participate in his or her own learning.
  • All children should have access to a quality education that encompasses a broad base of knowledge and experiences.
  • Children, families, and educators must work in partnership to effectively support learning.
  • Everyone should have access to a holistic communication system and technology is a tool that can enhance the communication and learning process.
I happen to have a brother with severe mental and physical challenges and I WHOLE HEARTEDLY support any organization dedicated to creating a better experience for kids with disabilities. Along with all the kids from The Bridge School, I'll be rocking out to Neil and Pegi Young, Smashing Pumpkins, Norah Jones, Jack Johnson, Death Cab for Cutie, Wilco, Cat Power, and Josh Groban. I guess I'm willing to muscle through Josh Groban if I absolutely have to {anyone who knows me knows it will be HARD}.

That sounds like a lot of fun! Does Nate get to go with you?

No Nate this time. Very sad to be leaving him in the morning. He's too busy to come with me this time. I'll take lots of pics and call him during the really good songs.

Wow, that's a pretty nice line up. Enjoy!

I couldn't possibly, possibly, POSSIBLY be more envious. I mean, hello, look at my blog name.
