I was able to check another item off my “bucket list” after having the privilege of being at the Lied Center in Lincoln, NE last evening for the Garrison Keillor presentation. It was all I looked forward to and more. He began the evening by having the audience participate in the singing of the beautiful old hymn, “All Is Well With My Soul” and held our attention for over two hours. Now in his late 60’s, he related well to the largely senior citizen audience and yet his appeal is universal as he talked about the nurturing of his young daughter compared to his older children. At our age and setting in the upper balcony, my wife and I missed a few of his words, but as I thought about it today, it was a fantastic experience. It was made even better by having a daughter, granddaughter and her husband, pick us up and escort us to the presentation.
