Hey music lovers!
Welcome back! My album “The Weeks” is released, and who knows if it’s selling but it feels good to get it out there! Make sure you check it out!
This week’s song: “Fieldtrip”
I took the picture for this album art at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco when we visited family and friends their last month. I’ve been to San Francisco a number of times now, but it was the first big city I ever visited outside of Utah. I first went there on “The Science Trip” in high school with about 18 of my classmates and a few teachers as chaperones. (Those brave, brave souls. I wonder how much they were drinking to stay sane?)
I remember the city took my breath away. Never had I seen such a large city up close, and never one with such obvious character and charm. You could look at a photo of just about any street in San Francisco and know that it was San Francisco just from the style of the architecture and the wild and bold colors of its building’s flamboyantly painted exteriors.
Over the next few years two of my siblings moved out to San Francisco and set up their lives there. And now a few friends from Utah call it their home too. We try to make it out to the city at least once a year and it’s always so beautiful. The tech boom has forced rent into the stratosphere, but I still hope that someday we can call it home too.
What’s a field trip you remember from school? It could be as simple as a trip to the post office, or that time you went to a dairy farm and you asked why that cow had 4 penises. (Oh wait, that was me.)
See you next week,
