FAVORITE LYRIC: H- “My hands they were strangers lost in the night, They’re waiving around in the dusty light. I’m waiting in the wings while the trees undress, Cupping my ear to hear the wind confess. I’m a ghost in the garden scaring the crows, If it weren’t for second chances we’d all be alone.” (Second Chances by Gregory Alan Isakov)

K – “Father’s at the front door, dusting off the floor mat, Brittle like his thick bark and tired like his old Hat.” (Cold Canary Gaslight by Marty O’Reilly & the Old Soul Orchestra)

SONG I WISH I WROTE: H & K – Elephant by Jason Isbell

CRAZIEST PERSON I KNOW: Gus- He’s our 8 month old pug. Whoever said pugs were fat and lazy has never met Gus. He’s crazy. Like run five laps around your apartment, guzzle a bowl full of water, run three more laps, and then throw up kinda crazy.
