I'm into counting right now. Little numbers, big numbers, long and short numbers. No, not the Math 11 stuff-- blech. The straight-forward, add and subtract and multiply stuff.

So it was that last night, before passing out I counted *89 days* until I land in Frankfurt and head north to the Mausefalle in Bonn to kick off the fall tour!! I can already taste the road on the tip of my tongue; I can hear the sound bouncing off the back walls, I can feel the laughter and the handshakes. My eyes push forward, looking over the horizon, wondering about where the next strecke turns over the ridge.

Beating towards the fall, I am SO happy and proud to unveil the final autumn tour schedule *this Saturday morning!* There will be twenty shows across Germany and Austria, and my first-ever show in the Czech Republic; along this brave routing there will be new songs and timely surprises, fantastic and warm new venues, and little stories a year in the making. 

So my friends, check your computers in 48 hours, and bring out your calendars!!

Back in Vancouver, yesterday I played music for my friends' daughter Rea. Her bright little eyes took in the rhythm and the notes and from there they reflected across some plane. I find it fascinating to imagine how these things are digested by the human brain and shaped into understandable bits, pushed and rolled and packaged along paths of consciousness. I could never really understand how it all works, and unless she becomes a neuroscientist, she will never really know either. What I do know is that there was a string of flickers, and she was driven to create. And, it was the cutest thing.
