Waking up at 11:11 a.m.


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


Teaching afternoon lessons at Music Makers.


Scrambled Eggs. Blueberry Bagel with Vegan Cream Cheese. Kale, Carrots, and Cucumbers. Iced Coffee.


Ana and I decide to go on a bike ride adventure to the oceanfront. It’s a beautiful day for it and we don’t have to get to the gig too early tonight. We take 24th Street through to Beach Garden Park where the water tower is and they have this sidewalk strip that encircles the park. Discovering an old unkempt batting cage – I climb up the fencing for a photo opp. We take our time hanging out on our bikes.



We meander over to Lolly’s for an unplanned Ice Cream treat. Running into an old student of mine, Elsa, and her family. This kind of thing happens every so often.


Later on, we make it to Abbey Road Pub for our second night in a row. Tonight it’s more focused on our usual set with a few special guest appearances from Bianca, a piano student of mine, and Emma.



Enjoying a Shrimp Pasta dish for dinner.


Discovering our strong songs and okay songs but most are all strong songs to the untrained ear. The sound system can be a little confusing to control – they’ve got speakers hung all throughout the restaurant but in the end it all works out. Ana felt a little funky tonight but most people wouldn’t notice. We meet an older man walking around with a cooler full of candy – he’s known as The Candy Man around here – interesting guy with a few words of wisdom and jokes. Megan and her dad hang around to help pack up – Megan also joined us on stage for a few songs.


It’s been a long day. Lounging around with Ana and mom in the dining room recapping everything.



Sleep 4:30 a.m.
