“You can’t make $200,000 a year doing a $10 an hour job.” Carole King’s touring guitarist recently smacked me in the face with that idea. Pardon the name dropping, but it just makes the story so much more fun for me to tell. His name is Curtis, and he’s a beautiful human being. And its
We crested the mountain highway pass, heading deeper into British Columbia wilderness, and found ourselves driving right into a blizzard. We had just left a fine, crisp Vancouver late-April morning; where did this blizzard come from? Day 101. We were going to Kelowna, BC, the apex of our 6 month West Coast tour begun in
Here’s one simple, powerful exercise we do every time we get in the Durango to drive to a new city. We go around our circle and simply say what we are grateful for.

This major San Diego “new thought” venue we performed at tonight – Seaside Spiritual Living Center – hadn’t returned my emails or phone calls for months of my trying before the tour started. I got one short email from them saying they book a year in advance, check with the Music Director. She never responded.
Yesterday the director at the San Diego Baha’i Center told me – after HERE II HERE performed – “You have a great responsibility on your shoulders, Bryan!
