2013 started weird for me. My new year’s resolution was to try 10 new things, last years was to travel to 10 new cities.

I awake at 10am happy and relatively cool. Most important thing on the mornings agenda is a shower. We left on Tuesday so […]Read more "Bonnaroo- Friday: Yeah, We can live like this"
Do you remember the scene in Wizard of Oz when the Bad Witch starts melting? That was me, 7am Thursday in Tennessee. I went to sleep in the cold night tightly wound in my sleeping bag. When I woke the tent was sweltering. I tried to turn away from the sun but sweat dripped off […]Read more "Bonnaroo- Thursday: I’m Melting"
