I'm sitting in LAX waiting to fly home. It's been a long trip but it's been a good one. I flew here to work the Taxi Road Rally at the Westin. Taxi is an organization for songwriters who pay to be members and in turn can submit their songs for review and possible placement in movies and TV. Every year they have a conference and admission is included in the membership fee. So people came out in droves to listen to the wisdom of established writers, artists and industry folk. It was a very cool vibe and the people were very excited to be there. I was excited to be there because I was there with TC but I also got to meet and network with a ton of people. Here's a picture of the room I was in for the whole weekend. People came in and I showed them how to use TC-Helicon's amazing vocal pedals. I also got to play my songs all day to a captive audience which made me so much more than happy. I haven't felt that inspired in months. People kept asking me why I wasn't successful yet, but I tend to think I'm doing pretty damn great. Oh well. There's always something more to reach for so I've decided that my next goals will be to release a fully produced album and get some songs placed. There has to be a home for them somewhere, right?
Sometimes I wonder what I'm supposed to say when people tell me they like my songs.

So I promised my cousin that I would blog about my trip to Paris, London and Japan. I had such high hopes of it being super easy and fun and then I was on my way home from Japan and not a single blurb had been written. Instead I'm going to move forward and see what I can come up with from now on. I'll post pictures and videos from my next great adventure but for now all I have is today. So I will leave you with a picture of Scotland. It's how I feel today.
