I'm writing this from a rooftop on a lazy day off in Uptown Dallas. We had our 35th show last night in the lobby this building. It was for a about a dozen new friends and I somehow ended up drinking bourbon and doing my David Gray impersonation for a good portion of the night. Needless to say, we had a good time.
We've driven a couple thousand miles since my last update and we've played in South Carolina, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas.
It's been hard for me to take pictures. I think it's because I've been too caught up in the moments to think about it. It's funny though how I feel kind of guilty or like I've missed an opportunity when an amazing night happens and leaves me with no picture to show for it. I don't know where that pressure comes from, but this modern world has a strange way of bringing it on. I'm trying to shake it.
Anyways, allow me to change gears...
I don't know why it is, but when you're traveling around the country in a Winnabago doing something you love, people tend to open up to you about their dreams and fears. That has been one the most powerful things about this experience for me. My hope for all of you is that you pay close attention to the people and things that make you come alive and that you pursue a lifestyle that welcomes risk. I know that may sound cheesy... but I truly hope that for all of you. It's the best.
We've got 5 more hometowns until we make it back to our own. I'm gonna close this computer now and continue soaking up every last drop. Thanks for keeping in touch.
