The human heart was—and remains—a mystery to me. But I’m learning. I have to. —Anthony Bourdain

Heart Beat Here

In the summer of last year, we watched Dashboard Confessional kick off their shared tour with the All American Rejects.

One of the songs Dashboard performed was Heart Beat Here, in which they said they would be recording video and audio of the audience for the video. I remember being moved by the melody and how simply it was being performed.

And the moment was perfect. The audience were all a bit buzzed after a few concert beers, and a bit weepy after hearing Stolen and Screaming Infidelities.

I was there and I felt it. A perfect moment. While that moment may never come again, I am happy to have been able to have had it, fleeting as it is. May we all have a moment we will cherish in our memory, where you can still smell the air, feel what you felt, remember how closely you connected to the person you were with.

Life is crazy and shit happens and we lose people and we gain memories. Don’t let that stop you from living because we will never be here again.
