I’m sitting here in the apartment. I have an old movie on that a friend gave me. It’s a John Ford movie from 1933 called “Pilgrimage,” and it’s got Henrieta Crosman, who is one salty matron.
Today was the first very busy day. The next while is going to be very busy. It’s still a month until So Runs the World Away comes out in Ireland, and five weeks until it comes out in the States, but the time is going to be jammed with everything from radio interviews to shows to in-store concerts to countless cups of coffee in a bunch of airport terminals. All I can hope for is that I’ve prepared enough. I have an amazing, thoughtful and inspiring group of people who I get to work with and I get to play music that I believe in to folks who believe in it as well. As a friend told me the other day, I’m living a charmed life.
Before things get too nuts, I just want to say thank you to everyone for listening and coming to shows. I know how hard I’ve worked for your belief, and I also know how lucky I am to still have it.
May all the best things come to you,
