I woke up exhausted again. Unfortunately with chronic fatigue, it takes days for me to recover from physical exertion. So, I listened to my body, took it slow, and made my way to the Whole Foods shopping center to shop some more and eat. The perks of playing in big cities is that there’s always … Continue reading Into the Sun Tour: Day 13, One Night in JJ’s Alley
After a series of unsettling dreams, I finally awoke and began my day. I wasn’t quite sure exactly what to do. I still felt too tired to do anything physical and didn’t have a real need to shop.
