Listen to this while I tell you my Cary Brothers story.
(I say listen because, after realizing that I wasn’t going to be able to get a clear shot, I accepted that this would be an audio recording.)
Towards the end of 2008, I had had a major falling apart with someone really dear to me. It was awful, because this was a person that I had considered to be family and they just completely started ignoring me. I felt invisible, like I didn’t matter.
A friend and I went to a show, in the midst of all that, that Cary Brothers was playing. The place was packed and we ended up sitting on the floor between the first row of tables and the stage. Later on that night, I ran into him walking around, and, knowing him socially, I said hello and kind of jokingly asked, “Hey, did you see us down there?”
And he said, “You are a vibrant human being. When you are here, I see you.”
And it was the best thing anybody could have said to me.
