beginning last week
and on through this month and into next
every weekend we'll be on the road.
this is much how july and august was
but september had a few free weekends.
i've heard folks say how entertainment
and being on the road is a hard life.
but really, anything is hard
if you let it be.
i look at it as adventuring to new and exciting places.
it is tiring.
but it's a good kind of tired.
a tired because you've had fun.
and i get back home to the dog and the schoolwork
fighting off sleep and laboring through the lessons.
but as the week progresses on
the excitement grows.
soon its the weekend and off i go.
into the flurry of anticipation
quiet miles in the van
(sometimes before dawn)
sound checks and instruments into their cases
out, and then in again (and again)
lugging them up and down and around
more quiet miles.
another awesome weekend starts.
daisy gets to come along.
i'll be armed with my puppy dog
a new vintage camera
and a bag the color of ripe pumpkins.
