The Peaks of Being a Musician

One of my favorite songwriters, Johann Wagner (Austin, TX), joined me for a couple of shows in the Big Bend area. We were slightly rusty as a duo, since it had been about a year since we toured together, but it didn't take long to find our stride.

The morning after our show in the Big Bend, we hiked Lost Mine Trail to the summit of one of the Chisos mountains. After a deep breath of cool mountain air, Johann mentioned that this kind of experience is one of the perks of being a musician. I corrected him.

We performed at the Starlight Theater the following night to a large audience of Marfans, who were there for Adam Bork's bachelor party. Mr. Bork owns and runs the famous Food Shark in Marfa. It was a good time.

Just got it! Very subtle when you said "I corrected him". Maybe I'm a little slow!
