Photos of Hats 5

My heart was warmed when I saw these photos of my hats with us at a U2 concert in Oklahoma all the way back in 2009. I've been making these silly things for a LONG time. 

My heart was further warmed to be affirmed of the accuracy of my self-portraits.


It's ALSO heart-warming to know that these crazy kids that drove us to the concert are still together and getting married this weekend.


I was really overwhelmed to be in the same space as Bono that day, even just for a few hours. He has a loving, generous heart, and seems to really use his power for good in this world. So, I'll just leave you some Bono words.

PS. Thanks, Cari Ann, for the awesome pictures.


Bad
If you twist and turn away
If you tear yourself in two again
If I could, yes I would
If I could, I would
Let it go
Surrender
Dislocate

If I could throw this
Lifeless lifeline to the wind
Leave this heart of clay
See you walk, walk away
Into the night
And through the rain
Into the half-light
And through the flame

If I could through myself
Set your spirit free
I'd lead your heart away
See you break, break away
Into the light
And to the day

To let it go
And so to fade away
To let it go
And so fade away

I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
Wide awake
I'm not sleeping
Oh, no, no, no

If you should ask then maybe they'd
Tell you what I would say
True colors fly in blue and black
Bruised silken sky and burning flag
Colors crash, collide in blood shot eyes

If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would
Let it go...

This desparation
Dislocation
Separation
Condemnation
Revelation
In temptation
Isolation
Desolation
Let it go

And so fade away
To let it go
And so fade away
To let it go
And so to fade away

I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
Wide awake
I'm not sleeping
Oh, no, no, no
