Waking up bright and early at 9:20 a.m.

We have a big fun-filled schedule of music planned all day.

Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Raisins, and Kefir. Green Tea.

First up is the 31st Street stage, the big stage right in front of King Neptune. Zachary Jones and Jessica perform first at 10 a.m. Then, Ana and I get up to do our acoustic set. She performs a few of her own. Naturally, the majority of the songs are sea-themed. It's a good time. Despite my nose clogging up my throat opens up while singing out. Meanwhile, my mom and Myra are nearby. There's a beautiful wind whooshing around while we play. Little kids running around near the front with toy balls and dancing. The art show on the boardwalk is alive and thriving.

After our set we all hop in the wagon and head to The Alley on 19th Street where Three Ships is located. Logstradamus got moved from the beach to here. Ladada is supposed to perform but You're Jovian and Old Baby are up first. The bike cops show up and give us some trouble about the noise. Apparently, this secondary location wasn't approved in the permit so we're forced to move the fest to Back Bay. While here, Ana and I enjoy eats at Three Ships – a Grilled Cheese for me and an Iced Coffee.

Back at the house resetting. Taking a shower and getting a few things done.

At Back Bay we get everything in order upstairs in The Blind. We do our LADADA set first for Part 2 of Logstradamus.

Unfortunately, I have to dip out as soon as we're finished to drive over for another gig with DEJA. My mom and Ana follow me around on this all-day music adventure. We just step into one world after the other. First, it's the oceanfront scene, then the local arts and music scene with mostly 20 and 30-somethings, then the old head music scene (60's 70's generation). Here with DEJA at the RV Park off Birdneck. We got a 35-minute set to cover with the best of the best songs on our set list. Plowing through all the epic tribute songs like, "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Sail Away", "Tom Sawyer", and "Hocus Pocus".

Back home...finally. I performed in all three of the musical projects I'm involved with: solo, LADADA, and DEJA. I'm amazed at how much of a chameleon I can be transforming my musical talents to match my surroundings.

I joke around with Ana that I have to prove this day actually happened, "I've gotta have proof a year from now so I need all the pictures and videos."

Sharing Chic Pea Salad Bowls with Ana and mom.

Settling my mind down.

Cherries. Chamomile Tea.

Sleep 2 a.m.
