Time is an elastic. We stretch it and feel it throw us ahead sometimes at a very intense pace. That is certainly how I felt when things kicked off in Europe on tour. Suddenly I was in it. Submerged and swimming forward with the rush of the current. I quickly got my head out of the water though by the third show and found myself loving the rush. Now well into my Canadian tour it feels as though I’ve built a boat and am simply steering it where I want to go. Always forward. Refusing to look back. Why fight the stream?
The litmus test in life is our gut. That is the canary in the coal mine. As long as it is still singing it’s sweet song, we are on the right path. I therefore refuse to alter my course to the trends of the time. I don’t want to play cool to fit in. I want to be real. I want to exist as I am and follow my muse. No regrets. No second guessing. I am therefore loving this tour. I am loving my band. I am loving these songs. I am simply in love with life. I answer to no one. I own my destiny and no one else is in the drivers seat.
This is “The Glory Tour”.
