>LA Impressions: freeway, driving, lost with out iphone maps, hugeness of billboards, yellow tan, homeless man (yelling: “have fun in the eternal fire”) 3 inch teal heels, swelter, sticky, sweat, restless sleep, restaurants, more restaurants, open mics are not free(!), songs about cougars and beavers, pineapple fried rice alone, love’s great plan. love’s great plan.
>Day 1 – San Diego: Too many details, work, logistics, flight changes, press, emails, follow ups, more details. and more work. My music self felt stifled and disjointed days before leaving…(forgeting why.) I fly above the fog and cloud cover over tha bay, popping up above it all into the clearest sky and softest cloud structures…(I remember…)
Any remaining tension our first show seems to clear…in the rounds at Lestats with Will and Nathan Welden, (a dead ringer for James Taylor….) I play a new song “Here,” feeling the words especially: “We grow not older with the years, only newer every day.” I am loving the newness and movement of travel….on to LA tomorrow…
