Los Angeles, February 20, 2008 – 10:43 I seriously need to find a way to come to diners and not drink ten cups of coffee. You see there is a dilemma here in that I pretty much associate doing work with drinking coffee. This must be marketing at its finest. I mean the coffee companies must really be celebrating every time some schmo utters such a remark. So here I am, sitting at a Carrows, typing away. I love times like this. There is a strange romantic feeling when you are alone at a restaurant, processing thoughts and planning your future. It’s great.

Things are moving smoothly. I am just booking shows, and working on music regularly. Trying to write as much as possible, and working on the record. At this point, I am setting an un-official Release date of Thanksgiving. I think if I just keep plugging away at this pace, I can get it done. We’ll see.

So Music. What’s to say.

Man I am feeling friggin’ good. I tell ya. Something has

seriously clicked into place for me in the last few months and

I feel more artistic freedom and overall passion for life than

I may have ever felt before. It’s insane. I don’t even know what has

happened, but I just feel like I am exactly where I am supposed

to be. Kinda like I have been on a long journey in life and now I

just sort of arrived back at home. Only home feels more true or

more purposeful than ever before.

In many respects it kind of feels like I have had a six year detour,

but detour is a terrible word to describe it. It’s more like six years

that have been spent growing so that I could learn how to drive the

ship when I got here. In some ways it feels a little like I am

starting over, and in other ways, it feels like the future is

just beginning. It is bright, I’ll say that much.

Anyhoo, I must sound like a hippy here, but I just had to unload.

I’m really excited about the Album, and I can’t wait until it’s out

in the world, though I know that is going to take a while. Also I

am very pumped about the events I have coming up. I get back from

my Seattle gig tomorrow night, and though I will most likely miss

the Super Bowl, I am happy that I will be home. I love it up here

too though. Torn.

Anyhoo, I hope all is well and I’ll write more soon.

Leaning Forward,
