Sunday Morning coming down....

On a lazy Sunday, just hanging with my peeps, about to head up the Coast to see my birth mother, ( that’s a story for another day) I am just hanging with Lil Marshal, it’s the easiest thing in the wall to be around him, he is full of wonder and imagination, this morning we had cooking bowls on our heads cause it was apparently raining inside. Mums asleep cause Baby Maverick had a rough night, all sleep is precious at this time in a family life , Toddler and a baby, I slept 2 hours on the floor in a bean bag in my office cause the family was all down, and man I would have paid money for that sleep. I have been getting a poster put together for some shows in Melbourne just before my last U.S.A. trip for a little while, I have even been stressed whether I should attempt it this year, but some shows are booked, and I feel that I have to come and say thank you more than good bye. I have been thinking of all the people that have helped me way beyond the call of duty, way beyond anything I could ever repay. I have always turned up in Texas, broke, with some songs to play, to sell some records to pay the band, fuel, keep the Wagon rolling, I have worn out friends, band members, and myself. My wife just sends me with her blessing every time I head out for shows, but especially the USA. It along way from home, but I always head back there because it lives large in my heart. I have heard mixed rumours of what people think of my exploits in the USA. I should have moved there, should never have gone there. That he is obsessed with it and that I should write more about Australia. They are all right at one level, and at another, like ass holes, opinions are something everyone possesses, and they have their right to them. I am at the end of it simply grateful to have been able to go to the country I love, and play Country music, travelling around Texas , Colorado, across the continental divide, hitting California, Chicago , L.A. the list goes on. Meeting Randy Rogers was cool, Steve Earle, Jack Ingram, and that list is way to long. So I have to get back there , just this time to say good bye, and take sometime to see what’s next…
