I'm happy to report that we've arrived at the end of the tour safe and sound. Many thanks to everyone who came to see us, who fed us and housed us, and who posted pictures and reviews.

Special thanks to the adorable eight-headed monster of Decibully for inviting us along on the west coast, and to the lads of Go Machine and The Prayers and Tears...who came with us on our 2-date tour of I-40 in NC. That stretch was a really special one for me for sentimental reasons - I got to stop by the house where I grew up outside Raleigh (the owners weren't home, but the little dogwood was still struggling in the front yard) and the site of my very first memory (the USS North Carolina in Wilmington, where I remember looking over the railing at an alligator in the water below. I was about 3 years old).

Our focus now is going to shift toward making a new record for a bit, though there may be some more limited touring within the next couple of months. I'll keep you posted.

But as always, it's been such a pleasure to meet and talk to so many of you. We'll be back.

Love J

Just wanted to thank all who made my entry into the Shearwater family such a great experience. Playing with these guys was a real joy and I hope to do it again in the not too distant future.

Thanks to Kim for letting me play her role (and her gear) for a few weeks.

Best,

Peter Lettre

For a moment, I thought you had employed parataxis in your subject heading; I have my doubts.

It was the highlight of my late fall to get to see you guys play twice on this tour. If you want to see a picture of the highlight of my late fall, you can look at the charming birds starting on the second page of "11-18-04 Local 506" here:

(These pictures were all taken by a designer in Chapel Hill named John Dixon, who does most of my print design work. You can visit him at http://www.haledixon.com.)


Peter, you played excellently. Surely, you were welcomed without reservation.

Was Ms. Kim on vacation/hiatus?

I would say it counts, yours doubly so. Nice pictures by Mr. Dixon, I was dizzy after looking at them. It's a paratactical party!

Welcome home guys. Great to see you & meet everyone.

Kim was present for about two-thirds of the tour, but had to return to Austin to teach playwriting classes at UT. Peter, an auld college friend and hallmate, kindly and seamlessly stepped in and filled her shoes for the east coast dates. Trying to keep a stable touring lineup can be tough when you're asking folks to leave their ordinary lives behind for a month or more! I'm really lucky that my sister was in Austin checking on my cats now and then.

The Milwaukee show was awesome. Waiting for Not Tonight played live. That song kicks a.
