A Poem Inspired by a Tired Drive
Jes here. I can’t believe it is Wednesday and I am just now getting to update y’all. This last weekend was magic. It felt so good to play with Renegade Stringband and Wild Rabbit. Such great people, we worked up some fun antics in the green rooms and did them onstage and we are threatening to do it again this weekend. The nights were late, but I really am in kind of a fog of creative fun. Olympia, Seattle, and Portland, you all brought it. We love you all, and I mean that.
Here is a poem from our drive to Bend. I'll see some of you there tonight. Eugene tomorrow, Mt. Vernon on Friday and Bellingham Saturday. Peace!
Don't worry about the fast road, don't worry about the time it takes.
Give all the love you've got while you've got it here today.
you can't sing to a crowd unless you're singing to someone
So do the work you do, and do it 'til it's done.
sweat will make you glow, and multiply your ardor
You know you sleep the sweetest when you're truly dog tired.
