Waking up at 11 a.m.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Blueberries, Maple Syrup, and Almond Milk. Irish Breakfast Tea.

At Music Makers loading up the car with music gear using every last square inch.

Teaching afternoon lessons.

Immediately after, mom and I drive out to Norfolk with Ana in her car caravanning.


Two Hard-Boiled Eggs. Orange Honeydew and Apricots. Banana.

At Smartmouth Brewery. Ana and I are scheduled to perform as Musicplayer and Community Witch. My aunt Pansy and her husband Peter show up along with other friends and the regular Smartmouth crowd. It takes a lot of time to set up and break down all the music gear but that comes with the package. It starts off pretty and smooth, then we make it rock, then we bring down the house with the hits. No show is note for note perfect but the camaraderie with the crowd is what makes it all worth the while. Afterwards, Ana and mom bring over a delicious Margherita Pizza from the bake house down the street.

After unloading gear here and there and everywhere I make it home. Enjoying snacks with the family and settling down.

Sitting in my computer chair organizing video clips from the day and feeling trapped in the responsibility I’ve placed on myself to keep my life archived in some fashion.

Sleep next to Ana at 3:30 a.m.
