So I'm here in my kitchen listening to Minnesota Public Radio. It's the rebroadcast of Wits, Episode 45. I've heard it before so it's just kind of playing in the background as I wash up a few dishes. I'm so taken with a song that musical guests Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires are performing that I pause to listen while I return the shiny clean wine glasses to the china cabinet. Oh, yeah. I'm seriously taken with this song. I discover after Googling the pair of musicians that the title of the song is Traveling Alone. I pull up my Barnes & Noble account where I am a member entitled to free shipping and discover this song is on the cd Southeastern and is discounted 40%. I click on add to bag and place my order. Returning to the Google page where I started the search I find out he is playing in Sioux Falls at the Orpheum in nine days. There are still tickets available in the balcony for twenty-five bucks. Talk about instant gratification. Do I dare ask further that Amanda Shires will be appearing with him? Indeed, ask away! The worst they can do is say no.
