Waking up at 10:30 a.m.

Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Raisins, Maple Syrup, and Kefir. Banana. Yerba Mate.

At the bank opening up a business account – eager to get started on this business loan.

Errands. A lesson.

Toasted PB&J. Potato Chips. Applesauce. Green Tea.

Teaching a small batch of lessons at Music Makers.

Then, with mom and Ana in the car, I drive to Norfolk for the big NorVa show. I’m playing with Ladada to open the show, then J. Flax and the Heart Attacks, and Major and the Monbacks. There’s a ton of people here – it’s Thanksgiving Eve so I assume a lot of people are back in town with nothing to do. We played a solid set and concluded our performance with a Neil Young cover of “Rockin’ in the Free World”.


We chill out at the venue as long as possible before it’s time to head back to VB for another gig I’m playing with DEJA at South Beach Grille. My life is a constant overload of gigs and teaching. But I don’t feel overwhelmed this evening. I was able to corral Will, Cynthia, and Anthony from the house. The band did the first set without me and had their original member, Eric Veterrick, fill in my absence. But now I’m here to do the second set. 

Back home. Chilling with the gang. Eating some leftover Red Bean Tempeh Chili with Kale.

Sleep 3:30 a.m.
