I’m closing out 2022 strong. Been a healing period, so these represent diversification. Ain’t afraid of controversy either (Kyrie 4s). Besides, jealousy gets you nowhere.
Red Butte, UT > Grand Junction, CO > Santa Fe, NM > Andover, KS > New York, NY – Day 201-205
Just one more show this coming weekend. It’s been over a year and I just can’t seem to fully exhale. Not until I’m finally home for a while. I was in Santa Fe and sat on a stone bench, only to find 2 stones at the end of this bench (see picture). I instantly thought about Mom and Monk. They were right there beside me. They’ve been there the entire time. That’s how I have to see things right now. That’s what gets me through the hours.
Tour tip: Place the almonds, dried fruit, brown sugar (however you eat it) at the bottom of your bowl/cup, THEN pour the oatmeal into your bowl.
September 2022: Back End of My Trip
Say less. Do more. Eat the food. Speak the language. Always remain grateful and present.
August 2022: Healing Time in Paris
This is that time of my life. Post Mom. Post Monk. Exactly ten years have passed. I’m finally posting something here. I have no excuse as to why I haven’t shared pictures here. I’m on Facebook. I’m on Instagram. The new and current way. I was living life and enjoying being a dog-dad. But those duties are completed. Silence is brutal, so I enjoy the rumbling sound of the public bus or subway car. I’m listening to music through my earpods and staring at strangers. When I have free WIFI, it’s one podcast after another. Then I stop to eat. Fortunately, there are plenty of choices here in France.
San Diego > Hollywood, CA – Day 199-200
This could very well be the end of a chapter. I’m not sure yet. It’s been a full year and maybe I’m just burned out. This break couldn’t come soon enough. Grateful still, of course. Bills are paid. Goals were set and they were accomplished. That’s all you can really ask for these days.
Waite Park, MN > Huber Heights, OH > Indianapolis, IN > Columbus, OH > Chautauqua, NY > Portland, ME > Brownfield, ME > Westhampton, NY > Selbyville, DE > Atlanta, GA > Lake Cowichan, BC – Day 188-198
Tour tip: Don’t eat the Chinese food at the airport, no matter how good it looks, and especially how affordable it is. You will always pay on the back end… literally.
Aspen > Steamboat Springs > Boulder > Denver > Colorado Springs, CO – Day 183-187
Sometimes it’s the coffee. Sometimes it’s the local record store. Sometimes it’s the people. Most times it’s the food.
Tour tip: Eat as much fresh watermelon as is offered in catering. Bandmates don’t seem to want it. More for me. Good for my complexion. Stay hydrated at all times.
I’m getting ready to do something very special this summer – in the studio and on the live stage. In that case, I’m still keepin’ a low profile, but still gonna stand out amongst the crowd.
