On the road again...

Greetings from Arlington, Texas!

I've been on the road for 11 days now and all is well.  I'm happy to say the van has been running smooth, and the miles have been easy.  

I stopped to jam with my friends in Knoxville, spent a night with the folks at the Auburn Guitar Shoppe in Alabama, and cruised on toward Houston.  Here's a picture from my show at the Last Concert Cafe...

While I was in town I got to reconnect with my friend Sean who I met at Song School in Colorado last summer.  I stayed at his house in La Porte for a few nights.  We worked on some music and even co-wrote a song.  This is his backyard...

We joined a circle of fine songwriters for a Sunday afternoon at Visionary Heights in Houston.  I love when people sit in a circle with guitars...

I also stayed with my friend Gervais.  I met her through her dad, Bus Mikie in California.  Mikie is one of my favorite people in the world.  He had been a steady beam of love and light in my life for the last 10 years or so. He tells me he's one of my "groupies".  He has lived in this bus for the past 38 years, but recently gave it to his daughter after he was not well enough to take care of it.  Gervais drove the bus back to her home in Houston, and I stayed in it for a few nights...

 

When Gervais realized that I was going to see her dad when I get to California she asked if I could deliver a few things to him.  One of these things was his box of 110 cassette tapes! ...

Wow! Precious cargo for sure.  I feel like my trip has taken on another level of excitement.  I feel like I'm really on a mission now.  And in case you were wondering, yes, I do have a tape player in the van.

Well, I'm getting ready to head out to an open mic in Arlington...

May the road roll on...
