Haven't had much time to blog lately. Things are busy. I did get to go to a wonderful show this evening and felt a stirring of desire for a reawakening of musical creativity in my life (that always happens when I see an inspiring performance).
Justin Vernon is Bon Iver--the guy is just fresh and real and as down-to-earth as you could ever hope. You can still sense that passion in his voice--a voice that says "I still believe in the words that I am singing." The falsetto--and the way in which he keeps it going--boggles the hopelessly baritone mind.
Enjoy "Lump Sum" if you have a few minutes.
I'll be spending time with my family over the next week or so. I look forward to it. Being around your people has a way of re-rooting you--helping you to realize what is most important. They are good people and I look forward to traveling, tributes to a now resting Bee, long chats and strolls, and just generally clearing the ol' noggin for the home stretch.
