Tonight I am going to a chamber music concert. By myself. This is the first time I’ve been brave enough to go solo to an event and I’m proud of myself before the fact.
My BFF M.F.K. Fisher wrote about dining alone, and I like to think I’m channeling the same spirit here–just with a concert instead of dinner:
I came to believe that since nobody else dared to feed me as I wished to be fed, I must do it myself, with as much aplomb as I could muster.
If you need me, I’ll be attending a concert with aplomb.
Joshua A. Isbell
I mustered up the courage to wade through the crowds alone at Pioneer Park to see Bright Eyes up-close. Yay for aplomb.
Aplomb is always a good thing to have. Enjoy!
Thank you for that quote. I will be using it in my own life.
