Okay, I get it. I stink at this.
I’ve been back from Europe for 2 1/2 weeks – 1 week less than the time I was away. I feel as though I haven’t really gotten a chance to download from that time – to sit and think about what happened and what I might have learned. I’d like to do that soon..
Last weekend Jon, Paul, and I drove to Haines, AK for the South East Alaska State Fair. It was quite an experience: 17 hours each way. Paul and Jon are good road trip buddies though.. so I had fun. It’s interesting that right before a show I always get really apprehensive and pretty tense. I don’t even think it’s nerves.. but more “I’m NOT doing it.” I don’t really know what it is – but I think it’s fear. And yet, one day later I can be listening to incredible music and realize, “I need to make this.” How am I going to reconcile those two things?
I’ve been 27 for a month now. I think the year’s off to a good start. Definitely some ups and downs already, but I think I’m growing and I’m learning a lot. I hope that continues to happen. And I hope the ups outweigh the downs.
