I never manage to get enough sleep the night before a travel day.

Today was a pretty good day.
And oh my goodness it was so good. If I used expletives I might be tempted to insert one there, just as an accent, just to let you know that Memphis doesn't joke around when it comes to home cooked meals.
The only problem was that we had to do another show after this southern feast, so you know, I had to content myself with just one plate.
Tonight Ian, Brandon, and I were staying up too late talking, just blatantly ignoring the fact that we had two shows today, survived the mayhem of Beale street afterward, and have another two shows tomorrow.

They came here to record three songs for Rattle and Hum. And on that wall is the 12 track they used.
They knew that whatever happened within these walls was something they wanted to be a part of.
And Sun Studio remains the only recording studio that is a national monument in the country. It gives tours through the day, but is still a working studio at night. The most recent artist to record here was John Mellencamp. And this place still has the same white tiles that soundproofed the room back when Elvis Presley stopped in for a visit, after being signed with RCA Records. Sam Phillips called in Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins too. And what do they do?

Today I was at the front desk of my hotel, about to ask for a voucher to go to the gym that is actually bigger than a breadbox unlike the hotel's gym, when the clerk beat me to the punch.

Lately I have been possessed with this desire to learn to sew.

So I'm back.

It's his footsteps that reach me.

My family pretty much talks about everything.
- we need to talk about things. maybe even everything. maybe not all of it now, but in time. especially if we want the kind of fulfilling intimacy that a marriage promises.
- she probably doesn't have the best sex-life.
- I probably shouldn't be thinking of her sex life. and I definitely shouldn't be judging it. sorry, lady from the letters to the editor section.
I am glad that the church is talking about sex and marriage and relationships. I think we all should be. Not all the time or anything crazy like that. I mean we have to save time for discussing how ridiculous Michael Scott is and really, Stanley? An affair? Come on; so not a good idea.

I've got this husband.
Which is fine with me, by the way.
So here you go, Drew; this is for you.

I really don't love them.

Let me tell you a story.

That was a phrase that surfaced in a game my family played at the beach this past summer. It cracked us up then and it still makes me smile to think about.
But in this case I should say somethings large are napping, I suppose.
Letting go of the world for a moment. Finding solace in sleep.
Forgetting about your argyle collar, your Armani glasses, and just cuddling up tight.
Letting the silence become a lullaby, the couch a vessel that takes you on a journey, a brief respite.
So go on then, slip into your
and we'll be here when you're ready to wake up.

My mom always called us her twins, even though we aren't.
Sometimes we need to make our own way in this world.
And of course, making sure that your newly acquired Japanese ninja sword from your lovely, intelligent, and hilarious wife is sitting next to your new hanging closet.

Some men might balk at holding a princess umbrella over their heads.
And apparently very very happy to be under that pink princess umbrella.

The air has gotten cooler, haven't you noticed?
I should also say hand-sewn. Cause she's amazing like that. And she's a beautiful autumn bride. Perfect.
I also perused my latest Urban Outfitters catalogue, dreaming of owning a pair of their boots.
Yep, that's right, a new bloggety design.

I will not be blogging as frequently for a stretch here. My sweet Drew has some time off work, as do I right now, and I am gonna jump on this and let some other things go as I focus on being home with him.
And other things totally means my blog. But so as not to make this dear blog feel singled out, it also may or may not mean going to the gym.
Please enjoy yourselves and I'll try not to forget how to write or use a treadmill in the meantime.

I traveled a lot yesterday.

It's funny how time works. The way it just keeps going, moving along whether you want it to or not. I am actually pretty fascinated by it...I think back to when I started this job and it feels like a life time ago.

I remember once my sister-in-law remarked upon how funny it was that her kids had accumulated so many toys over the years.
At first, it doesn't seem all that interesting. At least not for the spectators.
You are simply spinning with this stick on your chin, looking up at the ceiling, counting to 30 rotations.
They tried to pick out a pattern according to each of our characters in the show, and I gotta say I think they got it spot on with these polka dots.

The Tempozan Harbor Village Ferris Wheel.
And yes, I totally had to google that to remember it's name.
You can just make out his little head, with me getting as close to him as the glass would allow. But not getting to touch the fuzzy little dude was sad.

Since I moved to this new city that is somewhere in the prefecture that is called Hyogo (and I would totally be more specific if I remembered the actual name of the city), I now have an hour commute to the theater.

Another opening night.
And just like that, I am Jessica Ratshaw.
