A rocky trip

And now I’m back. From outer space. After a quick stint in Colorado for a show at Red Rocks…

…we drove up to the upper most island on Wisconsin’s peninsula, Rock Island. Found out upon arrival that its name derives from the most frequently found terrain on said island. Neptune was able to regally stretch his sea legs as well as dress like a human.

And now it’s back to the grind. But it’s one of the few times I’ve taken a vacation away from work and returned feeling refreshed and ramped up, ready to go.

Where have I been all my life?

It's been a busy summer. Full of what? I don't know exactly. Yoga has become a regular part of my week, which I'm loving. There was a time when my jaded self disliked the idea of "being a tree," but now, all I want to do is be a tree and find strength in my grounding and grow my branches as I damn well please.

And now for your amusement, a child climbing an ice cream cone.

A friend was married last weekend and after being involved in the bridal party, I feel as though I could sleep for many moons to come. It took place in a small, sleepy town in Michigan which I discovered does not serve food anywhere after 11:00pm. So if you plan to spend the day drinking flute of champagne after flute of champagne, bring snacks.

Next week we'll be flying to Denver to see The National perform at Red Rocks - could not be more excited if I tried. After which point we will disappear into the wilderness of the upper peninsula of Wisconsin on Rock Island for some camping. Neptune will join and boy, is he excited.

Oh! And terrariums. I'm really into my terrarium phase right now.
