Atpresent I am sitting in the air terminal of the Dallas Airport. Gate D20 to be precise. In expectation of my flight to Portland, OR. Land of Douglas firs, great music, and organic, farm raised chicken, with papers offered to convince you of said Chicken’s happy lifestyle before he was beheaded and served to you in a sandwich. Also – This is the land of my favorite coffee, my favorite tea house, my brother Aaron, and a dense collection of some of my favorite people on the planet. Both vacation and work trip, I consider myself extremely blessed to get to go on tour at all and have people who actually want to attend the shows. An airline pilot who has a haircut and gait more like an early 70’s cartoon than a real man (think Yellow Submarine), walks by with purpose, dragging his suitcase behind him. I love it. Airports are such wonderful places to people watch. And I must say, I don’t mind being watched either. I suppose that with my giant hair and my guitar I look a bit cartoonish myself.
I have been in this terminal, waiting on the very same plane, before and I have eaten at the very same pub that I just finished eating a traditional Irish breakfast (“No black pudding please”). My flight here was probably the best flight I have ever had in my life. My airline hostess, Josephine was so kind and inquisitive. She grilled me about journal writing for a good deal of the flight and I did my best to explain the concept and necessity of Morning Pages to her. Explaining that the purpose of writing every day for at least 30 minutes (ideally first thing in the morning) is to clear my head and to make sure that there is no subconscious rambling mucking up my day. I digress.
I AM ON TOUR! So… for those of you who haven’t realized I was coming… Here are the tour dates JStill working on one in Seattle for Thursday. If you have any leads please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or facebook works too.
