Back in the old routine II

Another tour in the books. And to say I’m relieved is a gross understatement. Wanna hear what’s in the front, back, and sides of my reptilian brain from June (when I start planning the itinerary) until April (when we finally pull into the school parking lot after it’s over)? It explains in part why I hardly sleep at all on tour. Here is a partial list, in no particular order, because they’re all #1.

  • Terrorist attacks
  • Bus accident
  • Kid or chaperon getting gravely ill
  • Kid getting lost or running away
  • Violent crime against a kid, or a kid getting hit while crossing an intersection
  • The NBC Studios elevator (Selfish inclusion; elevators constrict my breathing…they make me want to hyperventilate. Ridiculous, but there you have it. I’m phobia’d to death.)

But none of that happened, and I am grateful. I’m not a picture-taker, but I do have some favorites from tour…




But now I have to start thinking about spring concerts and graduation: the return to reality. Back in the old routine. Yeah, man.

    That picture of Times Square got me pumped for this office. I can’t wait for my return to NYC. I might consider just being homeless there. The thought of being homeless in New York far out weighs having a home in Greenwich, to me at least.

      I second that. The cardboard box thing is pretty appealing after walking around here without worrying about being hit by a taxi. Is it bad that I miss that?
