I got offered a tour a while back.  It doesn’t start until December and  I can’t tell you about it until the official announcement but it set in motion a whole series of events.  I really cherish the hours of 8-3 on the weekdays.  The house is quiet, and I can get work done.  That all goes to shit in the summer when my three lovely (awful) children are home with me.  When I got offered this tour I realized that I needed to get a record out in time for it.  So, with the kids home I would sneak away into the garage for an hour at a time to write.   Now, it’s quiet again and the record is done and there is time.  Time to think, time to plan, time to decide what I want to do after this tour in December.  I think I’m gonna try and tour the record proper.  This scares me.  I’ve re-committed myself to music, it’s what I do for a living and that means that sometimes I have to leave home.  So, that’s what I’m gonna do.   But, I’ll be back in time for kickball.
