A town called Austintown, a man named.

Tour yet another.
beautiful engagement.
a truthfully honest arrange of feelings.
flood much more frequent.
than when at home.
Though home is no dissapointment.
i miss it some times.
After this tour i will have been out for over three months.
I have never toured before,
and at times it seems overwhelming,
and others it seems so amazing.
most of the time it does.

We are many now.
many beautiful people are scratching the surface of this amazingly
land of love with me.
It is:
and court.
we are friends first and foremost.
after that we play music together.
we have had an amazing time so far.
we stopped off in lincoln to visity my sister and father (mother is away to visit my sister).
it was oh so good to see them.
i love spending time with loves.
love after all is it.
whatever "it" is.

we played a great show to a very attentive crowd in chicago,
after which we stayed with a wonderful friend ashley.

"We're off!" we screamed in the morning.
we drove to a small town about an hour outside of pittsburgh called austintown.
We found a park that stated that it closed at dusk.
We slept there anyways.
it was a windy night.
the wind howled.
we woke to the sound of police cars buzzing outside the tent.
we explained to the officers that we were:
a. poor
b. traveling musicians
c. very respectful.
they left just explaining that we weren't allowed to repeat the offense.
we were off to pittsburgh,
i am currently in the large 15 passenger van writing this and listening to the beautiful voice of Mr. Brinton Jones,
as the others are
fast asleep.


Pittsburgh tonight.

i know you have been hard at work on this tour, and u miss home. but i hope SO MUCH that somehow, for some reason, you find yourself on tour again in early 2008. and then, of course, the tour takes you somewhere within 6 hours of jacksonville FL. and then i can see you perform again! YAY! but, i doubt it'll happen, since you will probably never want to step foot out of your house again once this last part of the tour is done. and i wouldnt blame you, no i wouldn't. but, i am SO BUMMED that i can go to the atlanta show next week! I have no vacation time left at work. NONE! i thought about quitting, just to go to atlanta. but then my husband would be very mad. and since i have to live with him, and i generally try to keep the people i love un-mad at me...i cannot go. i am gonna go pout now. SO MUCH LUCK, I AM WISHING YOU!!!
