So here I am.
It is twenty five to three in the morning.
I am laying in a king sized bed (sadly it is being shared) in a 3 star hotel on the outskirts of down town Austin.
And I am in love.
With no one.
With nothing in particular.
But this world.
We have been in Texas since Sunday and I don’t care to leave (however it will happen sooner than later, and that’s ok cause I know I will be back)
I love the south.
I love texas.
and I already love this tour.
We are only two shows in and its as close to perfect as it can be.
My back ground in this industry is of the modern rock sorts.
And this (clearly) is far from that.
There is no rush
There is no stress
And there is no ego
This is real
This is life
This is music
And it has meaning.
I don’t believe I have found it yet, and I may not find it any time soon.
But it is there, and that is good enough for me.
Brooke Fraser has got an amazing team of people with her.
She is great to watch.
She is funny.
She is real.
Her people are real.
I feel like I have know them forever, when realistically we all only met less then 36 hours ago.
Today, I consider myself one of the luckiest guys on the face of the planet.
I am traveling.
I am traveling with my best friend.
And together, we are doing what we love to do.
6 years ago when we first met, we talked about this.
We shared this dream.
We shared a passion.
And here we are.
In Austin, the self proclaimed music capital of the world.
For one reason and one reason only.
I’ve got nothing more then a sports bag stuffed full of clothes.
I’ve got my favourite tee-shirts.
I’ve got my favourite shoes.
I’ve got thousands of miles of open road to drive in the next month.
And I couldn’t be happier.
I don’t live a materialistic life out here, not that I do when I am home, but it is easy to fall into that trap.
I have no one to answer to,
And I feel great.
I’ve met some amazing fans.
I’ve met amazing people, some whom I’ve talked to in the past and some whom I hope to speak with more often.
When I left Vancouver on Sunday, I was, in a round about way, a complete mess.
My anxiety was sky high
My stress levels were astronomical
And I left with a lot to do when I come home.
Causing more stress..
I feel as though its just gone.
I know I will be ok
And I don’t worry about the things I’ve got no control over
Because everything will be ok..
