Kelly has been on my mind more than usual this past week, thoughts of her permeating the bulk of my days. Without any corresponding significant date or occasion, I wondered what was going on. After some consideration, I realized it was possibly due to all the references I had recently come across, regarding a local musician. I was not familiar with his music but recall comments on Kelly's Facebook page about attending Adam Woodall concerts and how much she enjoyed them. This week, I came across a magazine article which mentioned a family's summer tradition of inviting that band up for an annual outdoor concert at their cottage. This family had also known Kelly well, since their daughter had been a very good friend of hers. The day after reading that story, my husband and I were out for coffee and happened upon Adam playing solo at an outdoor plaza. We listened to his music for close to an hour, with Kelly's smile and effervescent energy infusing the scene. The following day, I reached out to share my experiences with another one of Kelly's close friends and she mentioned that, in addition to having just spoken to that mutual friend the previous evening, she had also been meaning to contact that band all week, with the idea of hiring them to play at her wedding. Mystery solved.
