I got home around 1 a.m. this morning. Portland was fun. I decided to make the performance in Portland a ‘work/study’ of the songs – a sort of deconstruction and insider view to my way of working instead of an “in character” theater piece. The audience was receptive and my personal view of the evening was as a sucessful experiment. This is a good club because the woman who runs it , Chantelle, is first rate. If you are a musician, consider The Blackbird for your show. I want to utilize this deconstructed approach with the shows involving Larsen as well. It is a highly compatible concept within the context of American rock clubs. ……….. I’m jet lagged as I type this and have a few things on my mind : mowing the lawn, buying the new Tricky cd, reluctantly checking email after 9 days absense! cleaning the house, doing laundry, reorganizng this office chaos, and getting organized for my meeting in New York with Kristin Wallace who is booking shows for this August for me and Larsen………. I had a happy welcome home. Had a hot bath, wine, spicy chicken prepared by V. , and my dearest love Bartholomew happily hugged me all night. ……………
