Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons

Better than witnessing newborn nebulas in bloom.

(Pardon me while I burst into song.)

Niki and I saw Incubus two Thursdays ago at Jones Beach. I already loved the band and knew two of their albums intimately, but they still blew me away. They put on a fantastic show. What an amazing vibe. I would see them again in a heartbeat.

Here are five photos from our seats. Looking at them today takes me right back to that night at Jones Beach.

I dig my toes into the sand. The ocean looks like a thousand diamonds — strewn across a blue blanket.
I lean against the wind, pretend that I am weightless. And in this moment I am happy — happy.
I lay my head onto the sand.
The sky resembles a backlit canopy — with holes punched in it.
I’m counting UFOs. I signal them with my lighter. And in this moment I am happy — happy.
Wish you were here.
