Delayed posting due to wonky internet with US devices in Ireland and all sorts of off-line writing into non-wordpress formats and then fiddling with posting to private tools.
Last night was AMAZING.
The concert in Dublin I posted about yesterday by The Luka State was excellent — but the after connection was something wonderfully unexpected. As planned, I think this trip will truly impact the kid for the positive.
Once I have more WiFi and down time, I will post some photos and videos from amidst the many that were taken to preserve the amazing memories.
Here’s one I did get around to posting elsewhere 🙂

Hanging with Conrad & Sam & Jake & Lewis of @thelukastate after the show. They were truly & honestly the same in person as their YouTube videos. Silly, good natured, and genuine lads you’d want to have as your pub mates. Plus they do things like this…. Conrad: “Here, let me show you something on Instagram.” and then he proceeds to hold my phone a second and snap this photo in which he looks fabulous despite just finishing a gig while the angle is horrible for me. And I adore both the photo and memory even though I usually delete many photos of myself. Haven’t listed to them yet? Go here and rock out: https://open.spotify.com/artist/6DaXEbr3LdLNcui8pZf6AF?si=H_AMnYkYR_SVPcnzWez-Tw #thingswedoforourkids💕 that we also not-so-secretly love doing #thepowerofmom #music #thelukastate #rocknroll #ukboys #fanmoments
It was totally worth the late night for the creation of an experience that Rhys can take wherever they go on their journey. The band took this with us post-concert — celebrating and raising a toast to the fans that traveled the farthest!
I’m working on a few different items off line. All unfinished as there is not a lot of time for writing while on holiday! It’s a *doing* vacation, not a relaxing trip.
Driving to Slane, Ireland in 30 minutes to see the band again! Heading there early to snag a spot where hopefully no one will block our view of stage. We *thought* we had that last night — but we forgot to account for stage rush dancers in the form of big Irish men in the 1 meter between our seat and the stage during the latter part of the show.
🤞 Fingers crossed for another great show tonight. #thelukastate #rocknroll
238 Days to go.
