Idina at the Orpheum

It's way too late to be awake again but I've gotta lay some words down while they're still fresh.

Dan and I won the lottery for $25 orchestra seats to see Idina Menzel in If/Then at the Orpheum tonight and every time she belted a word or held an impossibly long note I couldn't help but think about my mom who loved musicals and who taught me to love them, too. I wished that she was sitting in that theater next to me, then I reminded myself that she was and that she always will be.
