“You were born an original. Don’t die a copy.” -John Mason
Often times, we may feel as though the world around us seems dark, drab, and even gloomy. Regardless of the surrounding environment, it is up to us to shine brightly and embrace our uniqueness, originality, and individuality.
For this week’s Snapshot Challenge, I wanted to write about a concert I went to a few weeks ago. The Temptations and the Four Tops were in town and I figured it would be an incredible experience, seeing as each group has one original member still performing. The Temptations came out first, and besides for putting on an outstanding performance, we watched and heard from Otis Williams, the founder and the last original living singer of The Temptations. The Four Tops came out next, and they also gave a great performance, and we had the opportunity to watch and hear from Abdul “Duke” Fakir, the last original member of the group. It was truly a concert I won’t forget, and the reason I wanted to feature it as my weekly Snapshot Challenge was because of the beautiful effect music can have on an individual. If there’s a concert of show you want to see, don’t hesitate to see it because you never know when the next opportunity you’ll have to experience it will be.
