Lueza with Hat and Tiger

Music is Healing

We spent the weekend at the Bridge School concert in Mountain View California.
The school that Pegi Young started 25 years ago.
The school that we moved to California for when Lu was turning six.
Neil and Pegi Young host a weekend of amazing music every year.
Lueza would sit on the stage behind the musicians with the kids and the families. This year it was: Eddie Vedder, Dave Matthews, Arcade Fire, Foo Fighters, Los Invisibles with Santana, Beck, Mumford & Sons, Tony Bennet, Devendra Banhart and Norah Jones with the Little Willies and always Neil Young.
It is always a love fest. The kids and the parents and the fans and the music and at the center, Neil and Pegi Young.
They honored Lu with a tribute video.
We stood on the stage with the families and watched.
No tears. Happy to see my sweetie honored but mostly numb except for the joy of the music and there was abundant joy.

Thank you Neil and Pegi Young for what you have done for all these children.
