Have You Ever Noticed. . .
Anita Sharpe on Life
that important things happen when you least expect it? Have you ever, for instance, set the time and day to fall in love?
This isn't quite in the falling-in-love category, but the other day I was sitting in San Francisco Coffee, my office-away-from-my-office, when a song started playing that made time momentarily stand still. I asked the barista what it was. 'Never Know by Jack Johnson,' she said. When I went to buy the CD ('In Between Dreams'), the clerk at Borders commented on how great it was, and that all of his stuff was just as good. 'Oh, you're familiar with him?' I said, feeling like I'd just returned from a long trip to the least cool place in the universe. 'Yeah, he's huge on the college circuit; his concerts sell out in about 10 minutes.'
So for those of you who are equally late to the game, Jack Johnson is worthwhile. It's been a while since I've been in college; but it's been nearly as long since I've been as blown away by a musician.
Who else out there am I missing?
