November 2007


After our show, a guy named Richard asked me to sign this piece of art he’d made, as well as a tiled jewelry box that was similarly rich with photos and complicated little handmade details. Kind of intense.

I took this picture from the stage of the The Northcote Social Club in Melbourne, which was full of seriously lovely people. ‘Twas the perfect evening to start off the Australian tour. During the show, I broke a string on my lap steel for the first time ever, and while Rich changed the string, I sang Journey’s “Faithfully” accapella for the first time ever — but not the last.

I’m so impressed with Melbourne. It’s sun-drenched and clean, with an almost cartoon-like charm about it, packed with color and bold, sometimes humorous architecture. Even the street art is pink and pleasing. During the day I walked, drank bubble tea, and had my hair cut.

We drove to the Pound Bend Reserve, along the Yarra River – the same river that charges through downtown Melbourne feels more like a stream here… the sound of it tumbling over rocks comingled with unearthly bird calls. Heavenly.

We drove to the Pound Bend Reserve, along the Yarra River. I found myself making a gasping sound when I had my first glance of kangaroos gliding across the horizon. I’d love to be half as graceful.

We drove to the Pound Bend Reserve, along the Yarra River. It was Monday morning. Michael, Rich and I were the only humans around.
