I know that I'm not the only one who discovered him at 12 years of age. I am likely not the only girl who fell in love with him and believed for a few short months that she would marry him.
I know that I first realized I wouldn't marry him because of our age and geographical differences...
Of course, there are many who will also point out the issue of sexual preference, but by the time I learned that my fantasy marriage was already a thing of the past.
What has never disappeared is my great love for his music.
As an adult I learned of people who had seen him in concert and I wished I could be so lucky....but what was the likelihood that he would ever visit our prairie city?
Lucky for me, some fantasies do become realities. I saw him in Saskatoon a few years ago, and then in Regina more recently. AND...I will see him again in May.
While I will know with my adult mind that he is singing to the entire audience, for a few short hours he will be performing only for me. Ever the consumate performer, it will be a show to remember.
Looking forward to Elton John!
