Looking For An Angel: Found

My friend Ashley and I arrived at the Hammerstein Ballroom post-Algonquin Hotel martini (yes!) for Kylie Minogue's concert to find a line that stretched down the block and around the corner and then down that block and around another corner and so we got in line and quickly sped ahead and, well, since the venue is located on West 34th Street in Manhattan once we came back around that initial corner and onto the initial block we were afforded a perfect view of the Empire State Building at twilight. It was quite beautiful. 102 stories of exquisite art deco twinkling at the top in emerald green. But I think you see where I'm going. Which is to say that when I walked out of the venue two hours later in a celestial rapture I did not even notice New York City's tallest building because despite being only five feet tall, Kylie Minogue towers over the Empire State Building with the the greatest of ease.

Kylie knows the way to unbridled ecstasy.
And even though I could easily unleash another 72 proclamation-laden paragraphs, for quite likely the first time in my life, I think I want to leave it at that and not take it any further. It's nothing personal. It's that the show was very personal to me and I'd kinda just like to keep it that way.

ALWAYS happy to hear of another Kylie fan. She deserves so much more love in the States.
