Back in the old routine II

Another tour in the books. And to say I’m relieved is a gross understatement. Wanna hear what’s in the front, back, and sides of my reptilian brain from June (when I start planning the itinerary) until April (when we finally pull into the school parking lot after it’s over)? It explains in part why I hardly sleep at all on tour. Here is a partial list, in no particular order, because they’re all #1.

  • Terrorist attacks
  • Bus accident
  • Kid or chaperon getting gravely ill
  • Kid getting lost or running away
  • Violent crime against a kid, or a kid getting hit while crossing an intersection
  • The NBC Studios elevator (Selfish inclusion; elevators constrict my breathing…they make me want to hyperventilate. Ridiculous, but there you have it. I’m phobia’d to death.)

But none of that happened, and I am grateful. I’m not a picture-taker, but I do have some favorites from tour…

I could so live here.

Love me some Central Park.

But now I have to start thinking about spring concerts and graduation: the return to reality. Back in the old routine. Yeah, man.

Really glad that the tour went well and that none of your fears were realized.

That picture of Times Square got me pumped for this office. I can’t wait for my return to NYC. I might consider just being homeless there. The thought of being homeless in New York far out weighs having a home in Greenwich, to me at least.

I second that. The cardboard box thing is pretty appealing after walking around here without worrying about being hit by a taxi. Is it bad that I miss that?
