This is certainly not my first EW, but it's the first one I do as a "civilian" - that is, it is not a business trip. That's the bad news, since I had hoped to be promoting a new documentary.
The good news is that I will be going simply because I want to enjoy the events, see my "Elvis" friends, soak in all the Elvis music and concerts. I have never been to the vigil but maybe this is the year to do that. I've been to Graceland, of course, but I have never sensed Elvis' presence there. While I feel it at other times and at other places, I've never felt it at Graceland. Maybe he shows up for the vigil to see his fans. Maybe this is the year to do the vigil.
