Waking up to a text from Jimmy, "Ready when you are." It's 9:45 a.m. in Hanover, Maryland. I put my stuff together and meet Jimmy downstairs in the lobby. We've got to journey back to Virginia Beach.

On the drive talking and critiquing our performance from last night and DEJA shows in general – how super talented musicians are a dime a dozen but finding a band who can work well together isn't.  

Stopping by a local bagel joint. Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese. Iced Coffee.

Continuing on 50 then to 13 (Eastern Shore).

Picking up some produce from a farmer's market off the road.

At a rest stop that Jimmy likes to stop at. While he smokes a cigarette I scan the shaded picnic area. Looking at all the etchings of people's initials and names on the trees. Some of them date back to the 90's – they look grown in and dull. A small sign appears to be eaten by the tree. A fungi bunch grown into the stump. This little scene reminds me of how important it is that I get out to nature soon. I need a natural world rejuvenation.

Back in town. Picking up my acoustic guitar from Moe's.

Home. PB&J Toast with Lentil Potato Curls and Honey Green Tea.



Enjoying leftover Chicken, Peppers, Brussel Sprouts, Potatoes, and Spinach on the drive to Newport News. DEJA's got a gig at Hoss's. Every time we play here it's a packed and rowdy house. It's a fun couple of sets.

I'm already worn out from "touring" so to speak. Played Maryland last night – had to drive 4 and half hours today – then driving back and forth to Newport News – then tomorrow we got more driving to do heading to OBX.

Picking up some gas and a Chocolate Donut from a 7-11.

Back home.

Sleep 3:30 a.m.
