Hey! We are back in Cincinnati and it is kinda nice to be home for a minute. This was by far my favorite tour we have had--the people we met, the energy of the shows themselves, the insanity of SXSW--was just incredible. I think another thing that held me together was meditating on the regular. I'm not an expert meditator by any means, but have taken to at least 11 minutes of focused breathing a day. Things that would normally make me hyperventilate or panic were a lot more manageable. When I became stressed out at a show, I could just focus back on breathing for a few minutes and come back to a clearer reality. I highly recommend trying it out to anyone who hasn't before. And my non-expert advice is to start with a ridiculously small amount of time. It's like running. You don't start with a marathon. Try 3 minutes.
But enough about breathing and back to the tour itself---here are some pictures from our travels and little stories to accompany them.
