Laura and I are crashing with my best friend Greg in Ohio for the next few weeks; work’s been kinda tight since I left Canada, and I’m down here searching. Billions of things go through your mind when you’re looking for a job and can’t find one in the industry – do I look into other industries for a job, or do I continue pushing my own things? Do I find somewhere to hunker down and get through a rough time? It’s pretty amazing to be someone who has a wonderful and crafty partner with which to weather the bad times. I’m so grateful for my life, and it’s amazing to have such good friends. It is truly humbling.

Go get a cup of coffee, sit down on the couch, and groove to this song — just hit play, you know you need some Rare Earth in your Saturday.
