Postcards of Canada

Home, after 14 shows in 14 cities, and nearly 13,000 kilo-miles of road between them. Somewhat miraculously, Joshua and I encountered only one day of old-fashioned white-out winter driving conditions on our drive from Vancouver to Montreal, and escaped even a single moose sighting. It would seem that both Canadian winters and moose populations should be added to the endangered species list.

A huge debt of gratitude is owed to all of you who came out to the shows, bought music, brought us baking, gave us directions, made us breakfast, housed or otherwise fed us along the journey. Your presence and providence was a reviving tonic for a couple of weary travelers, and having the opportunity to meet so many of you post-show this tour is at the top of a very long list of highlights. To the other bands we shared stages with, venue staff, and radio/blog personalities who played/blogged our music, thank-you for being flexible and cool, for taking such good care of us, and for supporting independent Canadian music.

There’s a photo gallery of the trip (as seen through many a dusty windshield) up if you’d like to have a closer look at life on the road. Thank-you again for the warm welcome friends. My heart is full. Hope to see you again soon.

Live and love well.
