Everything was at a crossroads.
The first week of February 2001 I was driving with everything I owned, my two
cats, and first wife to Florida.
I was ready for a change. And I knew
Florida was just temporary from day one of the decision. But it was a breath of fresh air to go. And to be away for a while.
And it was a risk. Didn’t know anyone
around. Had to start fresh. Which was what I wanted but also a little
This crossroads was critical, and I didn’t even know how much. I was 26 by the time I finished unpacking in
the middle of February.
I’m not a big fan of the band U2. I’m
not saying I don’t like them. I just
never really got into their music. A few
songs are awesome, for me. Like “One”
and “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” and a few others are awesome. But never was a guy who ran out to buy their albums. In
the fall of 2000, they released “All That You Can't Leave Behind”.
About a month after my mom passed.
I didn’t think much of the album, or it’s lead single “Beautiful Day”. I was working at Borders in Farmington CT when
it came out, in the music department. I
do remember stocking the CD, and a lot of people buying it.
