City of Angels, or, Silent as a Church, or, I lost my mind that night

I played at the Hotel Cafe tonight,
in Los Angeles, CA. An old friend of mine was there (James)
It was very good to see so many people.
The place was so graciously quiet.
i love them all for that.
I really enjoyed playing Los Angeles.
I get nervous to play there.
Many amazing people.
with "real" jobs.
i have no job.
Tonight was the last show on the tour.

We leave again soon though.
tomorrow we will drive back home to regain strength.
The next tour should be very great.
We are heading out with Erin Mckeown, very excited for that.
she is incredible.
home on the range.
where the deer and the antelope play.
where seldom is heard a discouraging word.
and the skies are not cloudy all day.

love it there.

A small form of flattery, or, I am enthrolled.

We have had two amazing dates w. Paolo Nutini,
i had no idea there were so many...
people in Albuquerque New Mexico
Tucson Arizona.
I was informed today that someone had recorded
and posted a version of FM Radio, i was.
flabbergasted (sp?)
to say the least.
here it is if you would like to watch it.

He has a really good voice.
love is there.

Days in the belly of the Bees, or, Saving is as good as Stolen

These past couple of days have been amazing.
with a sunset,
a field,
a mountain,
the trees,
the air thats breathed.
A past, and my present.
What have i become?
Probably a statement that we all ask.
I know i have, and will
I feel more alive than i have
in a long time,
a car,
a truck,
a clock,
tick tick tick.
over and over.

I felt that so many times,
not now.
Hopefully not again,
for awhile atleast.

sing songs.
read books.
learn love.

Nashville, or, new friends with...

Our days were numbered from the start.
We knew that.
The Brett Dennen, and Meiko tour is over.
We loved them both, traveling,
was a very unique and special experience.

The tour ended well with an amazing crowd in Nashville, Tennesee.
I loved every minute of it.
The crowd was amazingly:
I was very blessed to be able to share with them my
feeling and trials
through song.

The following morning we woke up in the home of our new friend Bob,
who was kind enough to let us stay at his home.
We ate his pizza,
his breadsticks.
and before we left i broke is light fixture.
i felt terrible,
real bad like.
We made our way to his front door that beautiful nashville morning and bid him
We were off on our own (without brett, meiko, chad, randy, johnny, and the beautiful friendship that they gave us) to the next town.

The venue was packed,
and by packed i mean empty.
very empty,
but there were some folks (very kind like)
that came out to listen and to share.
It was a beautiful night.

We watched Sweet Home Alabama on our laptop in the car.
It was a very good night.

We are on the road towards Albuqurque, New Mexico (spelling?)
to open up for the new shoes man himself Paolo Nutini.
We are honored to be able to open for him, we recently saw him in Buffalo, NY
opening for Elvis Costello.
well it is now spring (i believe)
and love is in the air.
We are driving, and smog is in the car.
We are clean from showering last night,
and we have bright spirits (and hopefully futures)
