8-4 Virginia Week - It was a relaxing week! I started a new song. Had a chance to hang out on the mountain and went to a great wedding, Kailyn and Bear's. I spent one day hanging out with my Dad and Ron. I drove around to some of my old haunts. Played again (NorthStar)at a great place, the Thorton River Grille in Sperryville. Thanks Andy and staff! What a great gig!!!

In closing, it was such nice relaxing week. I needed it. Sometimes it's good not to think about anything and put your worries behind you and start fresh. Everything works out for the best, you just have to do the best you can do. It's good to be home. "Keepin' It Real" —David

It was a great week once again. Got things done in the studio, I planned. Got to play music with all my friends (old and new). Looking forward to our gigs in Virginia with Ed and getting to sit back a little (maybe I'll write a tune or 2). That would be great! "Keepin' It Real
