January 24, 2011
2010 ended with a burst of utter unproductivity on my part. Illness, the holidays, and general fatigue with the topic all played a part, and as it turned out I was unable to finish Chapter 3 before the year ended. I think I had dramatically underestimated just how much I had to fit into this chapter, and how much care would be needed in juggling it all! Then 2011 began with an amazing treat, a God Street Wine excursion on Jam Cruise, where I got to play 2 shows, watch dozens of others, and enjoy a weeklong, no-kids vacation with Lisa on a cruise ship surrounded by fans and musicians.
