waking up in a cold and damp charlottetown. it feels like it has been quite some time since I've had a spare second to write anything down here. the days have been moving mighty fast - from ontario, to our couple of days in quebec and new brunswick. I can't really keep the days and nights separate at this point. we've been out now for almost six weeks now (I wasn't sure how long we had been out, so I had to glance at the calendar) so this feeling of being dazed and confused - is to be somewhat expected. I think half of the reason its so hard to keep track of everything at this point is because we've been having such a great time out here on the road. so many good folks and good shows throughout ontario - I can't even begin to say how great that run of shows with alanna gurr was. I think my favourite shows had to have been guelph or kingston - they were all great, but those nights seem to stick out in my mind.
I do I have to say - its strange to be back on the east coast - I think I have been conscious of how things would go up until this point - and all of a sudden we're out here doing it - you fall asleep in quebec and wake up in new brunswick. Its been so long (or at least it feels that way) since I've been back here. over the past few years, the east has definitely become a big part of my life. so it feels good to be back out here singing songs. I'm excited for the rest of the dates - in nova scotia and newfoundland especially. I think there will be a good handful great times out there. good shows, good folks.
its hard to think that this tour is half over - and that in under a month we'll be heading back through northern ontario and back to the prairies for a couple months to hibernate with the cold nights and show covered ground.
I'm feeling it right now - this tour - the days and nights all compounding into the feeling that I feel at the front of my forehead - the feeling that says you haven't slept nearly enough - the feeling that reminds you that you're alive - it feels good though - and most importantly real. I wouldn't trade this road for anything in the world. it has been a hell of a ride so far. hopefully we'll keep seeing familiar faces along the way - it keeps us going for sure.
take care out there friends.
