In a little over two weeks, I will in a jet heading towards Melbourne, Australia to begin an intense two months of solid touring. I’m up for the challenge and even more excited for the aftermath of my life in 2014 whereupon I will visit the desert and Iceland within the span of 6 months with no agenda other than to enjoy being alive. Things are taking longer than I ever imagined but I am getting to the place I want to be in the stage of my life. Nothing is easy. It takes a village, for sure. And things don’t usually go as planned. Yet, the freedom I have longed for is within reach before I depart this life – and I aim to reach it.
