You have no idea. I erased these first lines so many times. I think I am an eloquent (not to mention, modest) person when it comes to the art of writing feelings and experiences (adding some more modesty here, yes, now it's great!). However I never thought I'd have problems narrating my own experience for my own blog!
I shall give it a try.
The concert was everything I dreamed! Full of energy and feelings and friends and awesome, awesome music! You can actually read my review here
Then the time came for me to meet her, for real! There were dozens of ideas bubbling on my head about what I wanted to tell her, to let her know and then there she was, receiving me with a huge smile and tired but bright eyes. Her disposition was open and kind and... gosh, it's HARD to write this, I seriously don't want to sound like an infatuated fangirl :P
Let me try this again. Um. I went to her and told her "Tervetuloa Takaisin" which is a phrase that my friend Tosca taught me and which means "Welcome back" in Finnish, and Tarja seemed surprised and pleased for it.
And that doomed me.
Yup, totally because my "excitement" button went off and I started talking and talking and speaking fast and her amused smile didn't help at all! (I must clarify however that babbling was strictly out of the happenings. What! It was!).
Haha! I'm so SORRY Tarja! I know you wanted to say something to me as well but I kept on bringing new things up and I think I might have bounced a bit (I'm totally failing with the "non infatuated fangirl" image here!) so you really didn't have the chance to do anything else but to smile and widen your eyes at my words and be kind.
However I appreciate a lot that you had the time for us; I know things weren't easy. I wanted you to know that thanks to you I have met so many wonderful people that I love so much, many dear friends, dear soul brothers and sisters all over the world, united for our love for your music and our love for each other. I hope I'll have the chance to met you again some other time and bring a more decent review for our kind readers here at TISAD, one that does not involve me babbling in it's purest, written form.
Ok, violins off! Soooo, guys! This was a short meeting but it was very special and all I can say is that now, more than ever I have a reason to believe that Tarja is Such a Diva who is fully deserving of this blog and every single word that has been said and written about her in it!
