We saw Eddie Vedder live for the first time yesterday evening at the Ohana Music Festival at Dana Point, CA. He is my favourite musician and has influenced me through his music for as long as I can remember. The first CD I owned was Ten (Pearl Jam) given to me by my big brother. I was instantly hooked!
When Eddie Vedder released his soundtrack Into The Wild, I must have listened to it hundreds of times on repeat for months. This soundtrack was my inspiration for the background music of my Mt. Whitney hike that I dedicated to my dad who passed away in 2009.
During his show last night, he reminded us to appreciate the good moments in life and never take them for granted. Life is amazing and although the world is going through some major events, it’s still important to pause and find the beauty!
