Waking up at 11 a.m.

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

Teaching afternoon lessons at Music Makers.


Mom and I meet with Addy, a prospective violin/piano student.

Grilled PB&J. Plantain Chips. Iced Coffee.

Catching up on business.

Chillin’ with Ana in her room. Elvis lounges at the top of his cat tower while we make love.

Setting up some stuff at the rehearsal spot then heading over to Chesapeake Square mall for a DEJA gig at Big Woody’s. The night air is beautiful and refreshingly cool. This place is hit or miss with crowd interaction but overall we’re on point with the music especially after being all practiced up from the shows earlier this week.


During the longer than usual break between sets I sit at the edge of the bar enjoying a Modelo with Tuna Tacos and Fries – watching a boxing match on TV and overhearing all the bar tender chatter.


During the second set surprise songs get called out by John – that’s what makes DEJA shows unpredictable and fun. Drew always amazes me when it comes time for the drum solo.

Back home. Watermelon.

Sleep 4 a.m.
