Yesterday, Richard and I headed to Vankleek Hill (about 15 minutes from my place) to see Issa, the artist formerly known as Jane Siberry.
I missed seeing her in the early 80s when I was busy working at enumerating for a Federal election and she was performing at the Rivoli on Queen Street in Toronto. I remember seeing by all my friend lined up for the show and I couldn't go. I was bummed.
But I got my chance to see her on Sunday performing in the auditorium of a local high school. She's fantastic!
After the show I got to tell her I'd waited some 25 years to finally see see her perform live.
And I got her to autograph her latest CD for me.
I guess it's true that good things come to those who wait.
