On the Up & Up.

September 26, 2009

Okay…a few things.

1. It wont stop raining in Nashville…did we get transported to Seattle and not know it?

2. So we just updated the show information for the Boston show…check it out below.

3. We are not happy that the show venues are 21+. We are obviously not trying to leave ANYONE out 🙂 We’d like everyone there but venues are pretty strict about not bending that rule. However, we have not forgotten about you…and we are working on maybe squeezing in a couple coffee house type gigs to make all you 21 and under lovers happy 🙂

4. There isn’t really a fourth. Well, here’s something…went through the McDonald’s drive-thru this morning (for a Vanilla Iced Coffee) and saw a sign in the parking lot that said “No Backpacks-No Loitering”. I didn’t know McDonald’s didn’t like backpacks. Which Jill then informed me is normal in the city. Weird.

Hugs, love and rain.

Crazy is as crazy does.

September 25, 2009

I’ve (kate) been feeling a little crazy the last couple days. Not crazy bad…not crazy good. Just crazy. So I…found a poem on the internets about craziness…

Aptly called…

“Craziness”

Uncertainty lies on the path ahead
Many events I don’t want to deal with
Are sure to question my fearless resolve
My heart I know will be wrenched many times

I may lose my faith and lose my way
Submitting myself to certain torture
Mountains loom ominously in my way
With signs of “death to those who enter”

I gasp for breath just thinking about it
Sweat beads down my face as I look on
How drunk was I to choose such a path?
What madness possessed me to go this way?

Why am I not relaxing on the couch
Sitting safe and sound in my ignorance?
I sure feel like claiming insanity
From purposely subjecting myself to this

But my reason, my ‘why,’ yanks me off the ground
It drags me by the arm and throws me out the door
Purpose makes me feel crazy at times
But it keeps me going when I don’t want to

–Jason Westlake

If you aren’t smiling right now, something’s seriously wrong with you. Haha. Just kidding. This was one of the state troopers that escorted us to the show the other day when we broke down. Words just can’t say how awesome he was.

 

Also…lots of fun J&K things coming up in the near future…stay tuned for more details.

Love & doves,
