Who Would Have Ever

Throwback to when I was thirteen weeks pregnant with Asha. Who would have ever thought that a year and a half later we would have a beautiful baby girl who would take her first steps on her first birthday in the middle of a pandemic requiring worldwide quarantine and enforced period of social distancing. What a time to be alive. I encourage you all to use this unprecedented situation as an opportunity to spend quality time with your loved ones. This is your chance to learn about each other, appreciate each other and be thankful. Take this opportunity to show love to one another and help each other. Take this opportunity to be creative, be compassionate and learn something new. We can’t always control what happens to us but we can control our reactions. Together we’ve got this. Humanity historically has dealt with worse and pulled through.

Deja Voom 2.0

So excited for this. Was super bummed to miss the inauguration of this festival last year Dylan said it was amazing. Thrilled to get to go this year and to bring Asha, it’s basically the perfect way to experience a festival and the perfect first festival experience for Asha. Also thrilled to get to bring Eric and Sarah as our special VIP guests especially since we failed to attend their epic farflung fairytale wedding on the Faroe Islands last year. Gonna be fire to have them there. They’re trying to get pregnant so Sarah isn’t partying so she’s the perfect sitter for Asha while me and the boys rage from stage to stage. I was even going to get to play a half hour set as NIGHT NURSE opening for ill.Gates at one of the side stages but then I wasn’t. Was real exciting for a second there but the Lorin giveth and the Lorin taketh away as Dylan says. Still going to be awesome though, just slightly less awesome without NIGHT NURSE.

Just Because

Just because another thing is worse doesn’t make something good. There’s always room for improvement and there are many things that should change. Sure, no one and nothing is perfect, but we can all be better, do better, try harder and do more. We are creatures of limitless potential. Our world and our lives are as good as we make it, it’s on us. It’s up to us. But we have to want it and we have to work together.
