And that feeling of ten people in the audience, that intimacy; somehow, at the same time, those 600-700 people that felt like ten, sound like a stadium when we sang. I think we missed Josh. And music. And concerts.

Phoenix Rising: A Tale of a Supernatural Convention in Vegas
Being in spaces again with about a thousand people, sharing this love of a tv show and its actors and musicians in person, shed that two year old skin of lockdowns, anxiety, unknowns, obsession with numbers of cases, deaths, and hospital beds and brought a renewal of life – a phoenix bursting through its pandemic ashes.

All The Feels: Endings, Emotions and Inspiration at Supernatural Las Vegas
As I was processing all the emotions this weekend, especially those surrounding endings of phases in life, or major health scares, or losing loved ones, I kept saying to myself, you really have to grab the opportunities to love and do what you can when you can. If something means the world to you, don’t hesitate. Do the thing.
Thank You: U2 in Australia
I basked in the glory of the music I most adore in life. I sang at the top of my lungs, and bounced and danced and cried, and laughed with you and 240,000 like-minded souls over four nights. And I thank you for this.
