Summer Tour 2019

Hi all, 

I am heading out to BC for a month at the beginning of August and cannot wait to head out on the open road again. 

It's been 3 years since my last big tour. I'll be living in the good ol' van again and my dad has been working hard to make sure it will run as smooth as possible. There's something about BC that is peaceful for me. It's probably the nostalgia in me that sparks such joy and comfort . Being on the road through the mountains reminds me of my childhood family vacations. Walkmans and Archie comics in hand, we headed out to the hot springs, pulling our mustard and sage colored home behind us. It was always the oldest trailer in the park, but the 70s carpet cushions and smells were home. Although I won't be taking the trailer with me, the mountains and memories will still be there. 

A couple weeks ago, I found an old Dixie Chicks album at a garage sale. I'm not a big country fan, but I love the old stuff that used to be popular on the radio when I was a kid. I slid the disc into my car stereo and "Wide Open Spaces" came on. I knew the chorus but had never taken the time to listen to the verses. 

"Who doesn't know what I'm talking about 
Who's never left home, who's never struck out 
To find a dream and a life of their own 
A place in the clouds, a foundation of stone 

Many precede and many will follow 
A young girl's dreams no longer hollow 
It takes the shape of a place out west 
But what it holds for her, she hasn't yet guessed 

She needs wide open spaces 
Room to make her big mistakes 
She needs new faces 
She knows the high stakes 

She traveled this road as a child 
Wide eyed and grinning, she never tired 
But now she won't be coming back with the rest 
If these are life's lessons, she'll take this test"

 

I started crying. These were my words. This was my life. In that moment, I became ready for another brave step in my career. This was me. This is what I was doing and I needed to do it, not matter what happens. I need these wide open spaces. To pursue my dreams, live my life and be free.

 

See you in BC,

C

    If we are going to talk about murals, it is a harsh reality that there are people who do not appreciate artworks like this. I feel bad, but there is less that I can do; I want them to realize that murals are [URL=https://www.glamourjackets.com/mo-brings-plenty-yellowstone-season-4-leather-vest]moses j. black vest[/URL] beautiful and worth appreciating. But I simply don't know where to start. Sometimes, I think of writing as my way to influence people to appraiser things that should be appreciated. I don't know if that is going to be effective, but I want to give it a try.
