Chuck and I are going to see Jeff Tweedy perform solo tonight. The last time I saw him perform (with Wilco in Manchester, England), he tossed a pick in my direction from the stage and then called me a “punter.”
In the following quote, Tweedy’s talking about music, but I think what he says applies to relationships of all kinds.
It’s so prevalent in a lot of people’s lives — this idea that it’s so hard to let go of anything, to the point where people just die…Neither person is doing anyone else a favor by staying together…There’s no reason whatsoever to keep it together if it’s not fun….You should be happy.
“Tweedy’s Ghost Stories,” by Mark Binelli
(Rolling Stone Magazine)
So here’s to letting go, having fun, and being happy…
Update: Look! It’s Jeff Tweedy! (He didn’t look this small in real life.)
