You know I dreamed about you for 29 years before I saw you. You know I dreamed about you, I missed you for 29 years.
Peace One Day Concert Derry 21st June 2012
On Thursday I went to the Peace One Day concert that was organised by Jeremy Gilley. My lovely best friend Aisling had a spare ticket and she very generously asked me to come. It was the day I got my degree results and it was perfect timing to celebrate! I am really glad Derry is the City of Culture 2013 and this is hopefully the start of very many exciting events that our city has been missing for a long time. It had a different atmosphere, and it was an alcohol free event, so it thankfully passed off happily and peacefully and it was a real pleasure to be part of it! Imelda May was amazing, so much energy, everyone was dancing even if they weren’t familiar with her, and I am now a fan of Newton Faulkner! He tried somewhat in vain to get the crowd to sing along to a new song of his, before being visibly happily taken aback at everyone knowing ‘Dream Catch Me’ and singing unprompted! (How DOES everyone know that?)
I was proud of my city and delighted that they are getting this chance. Long may it last! Would be great to see some of these acts back here soon. Here’s to peace one day, and everyday!
P.S Thanks also to Aisling for taking half of the other photos with my camera. She is taller and has better skillz.
