Even If the Engine Fails April 30, 2010

I guess there’s no point in trying to hide that we’re no longer in Okinawa. Jojo and I returned to California on Monday due to a family emergency, with many lessons, concerts and friends left unseen. Another trip is definitely in order, partly because I don’t feel I’m finished with the studies I wanted to do.

Please don’t stop reading — there’s still lots of catching up to do, some audio and video that never got posted, plus reflections and further research.

While there, I tried to think of all my favorite traveling songs. Here’s a homecoming song by Sacramento artist Justin Farren that became painfully relevant. I listened to it about a dozen times on the plane.

By the way, I had Justin in mind when I wrote about the anonymity of folk music. He’s been locally famous for years, and even though he could arguably make it big, he’s always opted to stick with a faithful Sacramento audience. I like that.

Sorry to hear that. Hope everything works out for you two. Look forward to hearing more about your trip once you get around to posting it.
