not keeping up
i am spending far too much time on twitter these days.. so much so, that i am neglecting to ever post here. it's not that i have nothing to say, because i do. a lot has happened since i left seattle. i've been traveling with my trusty companion jamie, who has been riding shotgun the entire tour. since my name is listed as the only driver on my car rental agreement, i am doing all the driving. by the time i get home, i can say that i drove an entire tour across america and canada.. (triumphant music here). we saw denver through 10 degree temps, battled snow, out ran the cops, (not really), discovered orbs who come from the fourth dimension, had cupcakes brought to us by some very nice people, visited my friend jim in chicago, who has the worlds most meanest cat, took a ton of pictures on my phone, visited our good friends at secretly canadian, saw the studio i will be recording my next record in, cried, laughed, shook hands with angels, came to the conclusion, that i really don't care for canada, even though i love the people who come out to the shows, discovering our car has xm radio, listening to the spa channel, missing my wife and son more than i ever have before, stuck my foot in my mouth, trying.. and doing my best, getting to see calvin and shane, who drove all the way from ohio, video chats with sarah and miles, getting zero amounts of sleep, experiencing a high tolerance for everything, contemplating a whole foods and comfort inn tour support plan, eating when i can.. or not at all, talking more in between songs, trying new and old songs out for the first time.. there you have it. i'm sure i have left a lot out. there is still three more weeks of this tour left. ...a lot can happen between now and getting back home.
