I am sitting in the S gate at SEATTLE/TACOMA INTL. AIRPORT. There's not much action on this side of the airport as only a handful of people are milling about including some sleepers and your random employee walking by. Believe it or not, I've been awake since 1:46 AM. But I feel pretty good. I know for a fact that I fell asleep before 11 PM as a call had awoken me right at 11, but I was able to fall back asleep right away. Later, I woke up and wondered what time it was?? My alarm was set for 5 AM, so I thought maybe it's close to that and I'll just get up. But 1:46 is what I learned and was never able to get back to sleep. How sad.... There is a lot on my mind right now, so perhaps that is why I can't sleep.

Looks like my flight to WALLA WALLA is on a small twin engine plane. Yikes!! Me not like small plane.
Oh well, that's the way it goes. I'll be back home early Saturday morning for about 30 hours and that includes playing a show in SF. And then it's off to S. CALIF.. I'm having a hard time wanting to be on the road right now. I need to get my head screwed on right. Hmmmm...

I'm now aboard the 36 passenger plane. We have exactly 14 people on board today(Including crew). My head hurts and I am looking forward to being on the ground. These small planes just creep me out. I feel like BUDDY HOLLY/RICHIE VALENS/BIG BOPPER on their way to a frightening death. Oh man... Got to stop freaking myself out. The thought of a plane crash just doesn't seem like a good time. Be well.
Peace, Mike
