Music: I'm a Believer

Smash Mouth's lead singer Steve Harwell passed away recently, and it brought to mind the one time I saw the band play live - after a 2007 Florida Marlins game in the dog days of summer.  At the time, it seemed like a sad performance due to the sparse crowd and awful acoustics:

Looking back on it after 16 years, though, I realize that there was a sort of beauty about that night.  Life is made up of moments like that - part of boring, average grinds. It was one of many in my life, and one of many in Steve Harwell's life.  But we got to share that night together in some small way, and I do feel grateful for that.
