pretty slow up here in the Klondike- still quite dark and cold….we are gaining 6 minutes of sunlight, every day, right now….so things are becoming brighter exponentially…and Mother Nature has given us a break from her -35 degree+ shenanigans…I’ve been writing/recording a whole bunch of new songs! things are pretty bitchin’!
it’s been far too long since i’ve written anything or posted anything or even linked to anything interesting at all….i will try to do this more in the coming year and hopefully, further…..firstly a photo taken this morning, January 1st, 2013, dawson city, yukon, 904 a.m…
Levon is in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Please send your prayers and love to him as he makes his way through this part of his journey. …
Thank you fans and music lovers who have made his life so filled with joy and celebration… he has loved nothing more than to play, to fill the room up with music, lay down the back beat, and make the people dance! He did it every time he took the stage…
We appreciate all the love and support and concern.
From his daughter Amy, and wife Sandy”
land of the midnight sun....well twilight, for now.
sitting on the porch…11pm….feels like 7 pm back home, 15+ hours of daylight right now and it’s only april….this might drive me crazy as the spring becomes summer…but, right now it’s pretty awesome…it got all the way up to 14 degrees today and only down to - 4 overnight….the roads are a fucking mess though…washboard way indeed. the folks are starting to roam the streets, old stock in hand…lots of work being tossed my way, the fam dam is doing good…pj can pantomime a monkey….things are looking way up…all the way up
it’s been a month or two….i’ve been so busy working, loving, playing, creating and starting that i haven’t (honestly) had much time to contribute………in a nutshell: 4 day train ride to edmonton…..2 day bus ride to whitehorse…..8 hour flight to dawson (should’ve only been 2 hours, but the fog dictates.)…..drunk for a few days and than, just working…hard….building, playing, hiking…..this is the most beautiful place. for real………here’s some lyrics and a picture….”two kids and a dog and a beautiful wife and i live in a riverside town - get up too early in the morning, sweat until the sun goes down - friday you knock off early, tip a couple jars with the boys - so saturday’s a little bit fuzzy, head to the tavern and make some noise…..”
