As Tall As Lions @ The Troubadour 6/29/07
There are some days when I think to myself, “Man, I really love my job.” I teach writing to college students; not the line of work most people want to get into, but for me, it’s my calling. I have these moments when I realize a student has made improvements, or grasped a concept, or found a new confidence as a writer. It’s a beautiful thing, and I can get a little emotive about it; you can tell that I like what I do. Why am I telling you all this? Because on Friday night, before the young men of As Tall As Lions even issued forth a single chord, all I could think was that it was quite evident that they are the kind of people who truly love what they do. And when the music kicked in, I affirmed immediately that I was right.
