I was thinking about how last year when I went on the book tour with Jon I was very concerned about keeping my own sense of self. I had specific plans to do yoga and draw and blog everyday.
This time, I’ve found that I’m not even thinking about it. I don’t have to work at it, I’m just doing it. I see things I want to draw. I look forward to blogging and when we get to the hotel and I’m stiff from driving I drop right into a yoga routine. And what’s not fun about driving around the northeast during leaf season, discovering new towns and seeing new things.
I always seem to meet interesting people at Jon’s talks. Some who I know from my blog but have never met and some who know me from Jon’s blog. Sometimes I sketch at the reading and sometimes I just listen and watch. I watch Jon and the crowd and how they interact with each other. Each reading is different and no matter how many times I hear it, I continue to be enchanted by the sound of Jon’s voice.
