I Did Because I Have
Feels good to be writing this from my cozy apartment in Philadelphia, currently housing the Amplify Peace Tour. We just finished eating dinner family style and are catching up on our respective work while Jeff and Koji mess around with some new material. Last night was the Philly show at Tree House Books. It was a really small intimate setting, the only one on this tour so far at which the attendees all sat on the floor. It made for one of my favorite sets of this tour, from both Koji and Jeff. I was fortunate to have friends from all over make the drive and come out to the show, some that had seen a Koji show before while it was a new experience for others. All of whom left feeling excited and inspired. My ultimate happiness comes from knowing that the people I care about the most are happy and healthy. Having people I love from Philly, Jersey, and this wonderful bunch that I’ve spent the last two weeks with all in the same place, sharing in that positive experience was a moment I really treasured.
Today, we went back to Tree House to do a workshop with the kids. The structure of the workshop turned into something really spontaneous and caused the kids to use whatever we could find around the building as instruments. It was really beautiful to see and made for a memory that I think the kids as well as the adults involved will carry forever.
Of all the things I have learned during my time at Tree House Books, and maybe just life in general, I think the most valuable has been the importance of family and community. It is a beautiful thing that can be found in the most unlikely of places. Even in a tree house.
