This past weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing Dwight Yoakam in concert for the first time. 🎉 Originally, he was supposed to play a different venue in a neighboring city and I hadn’t planned on going. Then the show was moved to another venue and tickets were still available, so I figured why not?

Norfolk Scope, home of the Norfolk Admirals. Not where the concert was held, but the Scope is much more visually interesting, imo. The concert was next door.

The awesome part (other than seeing him live, obvs) is that our tickets were upgraded and we ended up pretty close to the stage. He and his band sounded great, as did the opening act, The Cadillac Three. Despite the fact that Dwight didn’t play my fave, Ain’t That Lonely Yet, it was a really good show.


I only took a couple of photos during the whole show. A lot of people had their phones out the entire time and I fear I’m becoming one of those annoying “Put your phones away and enjoy the experience!” geezers. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Why therapy? Well…having anxiety affects every aspect of my life and I tend to be a home body…to the extreme. Obviously, I have to leave the house to go to work. But if I never had to leave the house, I probably wouldn’t. I’d happily stay inside, huddled with my books and streaming services, while food and other supplies are delivered to me. That is my dream.

But apparently it’s not the healthiest, so my therapist wants me to get out of the house once in a while and Do Things. Like go for a walk or take in a concert. And I did it! I actually #LeftTheHouseZOMG. And I really had fun while seeing an awesome show put on by one of my favorite country musicians ever.

Baby steps.
