critics choice

somewhere over this same weekend, the tour-cos found out we were Reader Recommended and made Critics Choice in the paper. it felt really nice to find out on the road, and right when we got back, we scrambled for papers and saw that BlueCo (my comp) was the photo in the section.

this whole thing, i've found, is really a ride. literally, and figuratively, a constant ride. it's thrilling and amazing, and in a few years i know i'll look back and miss the van rides and how tired you feel and bad road food and squeezing in workouts to feel normal and funny pit stops and road bits. still, though, in the harder times of being so busy and feeling disconnect with everyone other than your traveling band; it's nice to feel like someone is thinking about you, even that "someone" is a paper, another friend who validates that maybe it is all worth it.
