Today started with Thor, Jordy’s dog, letting me know he wanted to play… Try as I might to ignore him, he wasn’t having it. If I grabbed the ball or swatted it away, he would literally pick it up and and put it back in my hand. A dozen or so times later, I decided it was time to get up.
I went back to El Diablo before I drove to Oregon. That place is so incredible. I watched the barista put a devil into my foam and yet it tasted like heaven. Amazing!
I got to Portland around 3 o’clock I basically went to the first coffee shop I found and just went to town on Facebook. I spent most of the day critiquing the new album, (I’ve listened to it like 10 times now.) and invited people to my Reno and San Francisco shows.
One of my favorite songs on the new album has to be my song, “Portland”. This song is basically about letting go of someone but always keeping them in the back of your mind. It was written about my ex, the night that I was in Portland on the last tour. She texted me, and said “hey, I was just wondering what you’re doing.”
“I’m just sitting here in Portland, missing you.”
was the first thought that I had. I don’t think I texted her back… it’s probably better, but it’s still tough. Emotions are a funny thing. It’s frustrating that I could be sitting next to the perfect girl, who really cares about me, and wants to be with me, but I would rather chase after someone wasn’t that into me. And where do they get off on stringing us along? Why do they have to insist on reminding us over and over and over and over again that they just want to be friends?
I guess maybe it’s karma. I know I’ve done it to girls in the past. I just wish it was simpler.
Tonight’s show was only a 25 minutes set during an open mic performance. Raven, JJ, and Christina came out. They all came out to my show last time in Portland too. Good peeps.
I think I’ll end this post with my song, “Portland”. I really like the city. There’s something magical about it.
I hope you have a good day!
