I Get Out Of Breath



The necks are off some of the guitars and the guitars are in the suitcases - good thing it's warm weather now because there's not a lot of room left for clothes in there. The CDs are almost ready, the downloads too, the cars and hotels and places to stay with friends arranged (for the first week anyway). We'll be seeing my entire family this weekend and I can't wait. We're on our way to catch a train to Paris and then a few flights to Cleveland, our spiritual home in the US.

We even managed to cut back some of the jungle growing in the back garden. Last night, around ten o'clock, Eric set a camera on a ladder in the courtyard and we sang a few songs. In the rush to get everything ready, I can forget what it is we're even doing it all for. We sang a PF Sloan song and a Jackie DeShannon one, into the French country air. The light was fading and the birds sang with us. I hope the neighbors didn't mind.

Those are great. Thanks for this morning's soundtrack.

Thanks for the taste. Now I think I'll have to get my butt over to Rochester next week to see you.

The neighbours can think themselves privileged.

I'm so glad we put the videos up, we're hoping to do more soon. fun to just relax and play, and some of the rare live footage where we're not red-faced, shiny, drenched with sweat! Now if only we could have captured ourselves on the Paris metro at rush hour this morning with luggage and a couple of guitars - red-faced, shiny, drenched with sweat...stay tuned.

Great stuff, Amy! I'm looking forward to receiving the CD. Any chance that a SF Bay Area visit is in the offing? No Cleveland area gigs on this trip?

Despite the difficulties you sounded wonderful in Atlanta last night. Although I'm be the last to cause trouble, I'll still remember to put a little FACKING love in my heart. Happy motoring!

What great songs! I am so glad I found this blog. Good luck on coming to the US and I hope you are welcomed here. :)

I hope the same, Rosie.

Sorry SFMan, maybe if we stay away from the west coast long enough demand will grow to make it financially possible? I'd say the same for Cleveland but I don't think that "demand" thing will ever happen there...

Ah, Atlanta and hyena memories. Thanks Anon.

Thank you Colene - I enjoyed looking at your blog - gotta love a hard-working single mom who loves her van.

Greetings from New Zealand!

Why are the necks off the guitars?! Sure makes them hard to play...
