Cheeseburgers can become paradise.
Although I didn’t love the song by Jimmy Buffett, “Cheese Burger in Paradise”, I learned to love his music and free beer. So did my wife.
People believe Disney Land is the happiest place on earth. I beg to differ. For one night, a Jimmy Buffett concert in the glorious sun tanned coconut city of Seattle, he made it the happiest place on earth.
My wife had no interest in attending this concert. She only knew two of his songs. I told her to trust me. She did and didn’t regret it. It wasn’t just the music which was terrific, and additionally not the entertainment, equally as terrific…. It was the atmosphere. People were happy. Every paying guest was relishing in what can be good and peaceful in this world. There were no tears…Only smiles and people handing you beers. We felt as though we were at the most peaceful colosseum in Rome. Jimmy and his band made you, for two hours, forget how ugly this wonderful country can be.
Facing difficult times, sometimes we forget about the paradise we, as Americans, created. I hope and pray this current cheeseburger can once again become a paradise.
