So I got the flu… I hate getting sick, but whatever, every year about this time it seems to happen. I spent an entire night ridding my body of everything it had in it. I mean everything. Seemed to me like a good time for a fresh start.
Some backstory,.,, We had our trailer stolen, it contained all of our PA gear in it. Thankfully our fans, who are amazing, stepped up and donated over $10,000 for us to go get new stuff. We have already purchased a few speakers and a new trailer, and over the next month we will be replacing everything we lost. I will miss the old stuff, but there are no material goods that can’t be replaced.
Today I awoke feeling better about myself than I have in years. I am realizing the control I have over aspects of my life and I plan on exercising them, beginning with exercise. I went for a nice long walk today. I think I should do that everyday, or at least every other day… I did some yoga and now I am blogging, once again things I should do everyday, or at least every other day…
Tonight I have a show with Nic in Milwaukee at The Milwaukee Ale House. I hope the voice holds up, the last few days of harsh bile treatments may have weakened it a bit, we shall see. Then Saturday we have a show in Richland Center of all places. Should be interesting, but I am optomistic!
I have been listening to Ryan Adams “Lucky Now” 0ff Ashes and Fire, “Champaign, Illinois” by the Old 97s and The MSB Family Band (the cd we will be releasing in late March.)
We had a great jam session with Kenny Leiser of TLCB and Josh Smith at our benefit. I think the 6 of us should play together more often… It would be epic! Alright, I need to go pay some bills,, literally late fee’s are a thing of the past. They left me with so much gastric waste around 4 am on Wednesday. Live well everyone, and God Bless!
