Starting this Wednesday I am going on tour with Shinyribs. We will be in New Mexico, Colorado, and Texas.
For a list of full tour details here is a link to the Shinyribs website:
Usually when I go on tour, mostly due to lack of service, but also from trying to type things on my phone, and sheer exhaustion, my blogging input decreases. One thing I am going to try to do on this tour is to post some kind of poem every day based on what I see on the road. There may be a day or so without service, but if that happens I’ll just post two the next day or whatever.
Lately I’ve been posting poetry, which until recently I have never written before, although I have written plenty of song lyrics. I don’t even feel comfortable calling it poetry as I have no experience in that field. I think of it more as prose in verse form. There is something Zen about it for me. I enjoy trying to write something that translates some kind of image or idea without all of the explaining that comes with writing prose. I’m having fun with it. Hopefully you all will enjoy some of it as well.
