Jan-YOU-ary Much

January 28, 2012

2012 has proven to be a prosperous and adventuresome new year.


Just 2 weeks ago I had a skin graft to relocate tissue from the roof of my mouth onto a receding gum line. Upon getting the stitches out yesterday I realized in that relatively quick time of healing I managed to do quite a bit. For example, I wrote a few new songs, scored a documentary, cycled about 75 miles, surfed, went to Sundance Film Festival, went snowboarding, saw some great movies, went to LA, started building a motorcycle, saw Skrillex, performed live several times, ate lots of amazing food, painted the garage, made a music video, painted a rad mural, kissed a girl, many times in fact, flew to Argentina, and even slept for 15 hours straight at one point.


I’m as grateful as I am tired.


And I still love my life.


Very Much.


And I love you.


All Smiles,

    Wow, my January has been just like that too (NOT!) Just the same, my year has been filled with love, hope, kindness, the adventures of raising 3 boys, and a lot of your music – No complaints! I love that I’m at a place in my life where although I sometimes wish I could jet off for a weekend to XYZ (I have a long list), I am finding tremendous peace just appreciating each day, exactly where I am. And, even better is that I hear of others’ adventures and I’m just happy to follow along from a distance. I am happy to watch your wonderful journey – and as odd as this may sound – I feel like we are with you somehow – riding your wave from afar.

    That said, when you do make it to the east coast again, if you feel like getting a good dose of life “married with (awesome) children” do consider dropping by. I guarantee you’d have a great journal entry after spending a couple hours with us (and especially Ian) Check out what we did this afternoon in your honor. xoxo JRJID http://youtu.be/p1qBINuzKrw

    Everything happens for a reason…….even gum recession….haha. If not for that receding gumline, I would never have met you!! I am so thankful and honored to have met you. You have an amazing soul, you’re a breathtaking performer, and wow are you sexy on that stage. I haven’t met many famous, talented musicians like yourself, but I can’t imagine anyone being more thoughtful and sincere than you. I just can’t stop listening to you and your music. Please be safe in your travels…..looking forward to seeing you in the Spring.

    So glad you’re in such a good place :) Happy to hear your kissing a girl a lot too. Might be a bit uncomfortable with stitches but all in the name of love. Loved your performance at Sundance! If you run out of fun stuff to do, you’re welcome to come paint my garage too!
