I was happy to celebrate my birthday all weekend with Alligator, Elvis and Einstein. We made Gluten-and-Sugar-free Yellow cake and some sort of peanut butter fudge type frosting. I was JAZZED.
There is nothing like a tour to make you feel so happy to, at the finish line, celebrate your birthday by doing almost nothing.
Yesterday, we went on a hike and let the boys run their poodle-mix pants off, then came home and watched “Midnight Cowboy.”
Today, the spring greens are starting to pop up out of the weirdly-not-winter ground, and for the next 3 months I will have my eyes DOWN foraging for dandelion greens, nettle, and FIDDLEHEADS.
I missed fiddlehead week last year, and I’m determined to not let those little ferns fool me again.
Here’s a pic I chose to represent this post-tour feeling of one part electricity one part rest.
May my upcoming year be filled with lots of harvests, an amazing new album, and friends to hi-five along the road.
