Wednesday August 4 2021

Waking up around noon – didn’t sleep very well – long night last night. Hey, it’s my birthday! I think I’m 37 years old. It’s all a blur.


Cereal with Blueberries, Banana, and Almond Milk. Tea.


Working out at the gym. Listening to ABBA while I run on the treadmill. I was telling Ana last night this music is the only music that can make me cry and be happy at the same time. Has anyone ever cried on a treadmill before?


Scrambled Eggs. Spinach. Three Ships Biscuit (thanks Elliott!) with Butter and Jam. Coffee.

Watching Black Widow (2021).


Teaching lessons at Music Makers. Got a few birthday cards and birthday wishes from students.

Afterwards, the Modern Day Warrior boys (and Alexa) have a band practice. We work up a set list for their upcoming paid gig next week.


I’ve been having such a wild influx of emotions today and I don’t know why. But just as I arrive home I walk in to a small surprise gathering of friends orchestrated by Ana. Bobby, Josiah, Wes, Bianca, Allyson, Austin, and James Graves are all here. We share Black Bean Tacos with Chips n Guac. Jamming on the piano and steel drum. Eating an awesomely dense cake made by Ana.


Later on, after everyone leaves and we clean up I hole up in my room reflecting about everything.

Sensitivity and sentimentality have always been on my side but sometimes I find it holds me back at times. I find myself acting like a little boy inside and other times I act like a man.
