Yesterday Tripp and I made the drive to Laguna Beach and because traffic was light, we ventured along the coast route. We discovered killer Mex food at Taco Surf in Dana Point! Right up our alley with surf vids blaring and mega sized plates of food fit for someone that has surfed all morning on an empty tank. Me!
From there, sufficiently fueled up, we weaved our way to the Laguna Pageant Of the Masters, set up the gear and proceeded into the music sphere. What a great scene with full on listeners, the warmth of late August in the outdoors, and a nice and knowledgable sound man (Sid) to help us sound our best.
The drive home was perfecto with zero cars clogging it up. Tripp and I listened to Jacob Collier defying aural gravity and made it home safely by 9pm.
That’s what I call a good day living the dream!
And then we have today, which is still good, but alas, haven’t yet touched the guitar or caught a wave in the pacific. It’s a nuts and bolts, hunt down a refrigerator, whip the email into shape, kind ‘o day. It’s gotta happen every now and then to keep the ship on course.
The solo guitar Flower Hill gig is happening tomorrow (Friday) at 12:30 for those that are living the dream of being unbound from the workaday 9 to 5. Lets meet up and trance while our fellow workers are keeping the machinery of the universe purring.
Saturday at 3pm finds us (Leonard, Tripp, Gunnar, Duncan, and me) playing a concert at the Dove Library in Carlsbad. It’s a show sponsored by the Citizens for a Friendly Airport (C4FA). Here’s who they are:
C4FA is organized to educate the Carlsbad and surrounding communities about important McClellan-Palomar Airport issues impacting the character and quality of life in North County. C4FA’s goal is to bring transparency to the airport planning processes; respect the rights and history of the Carlsbad community; and to ensure a safe, functional and fiscally sound McClellan-Palomar Airport.
We’re looking forward to flying the friendly skies of jazz and samba. Hope to see you there!
all the very best, Peter
