just one of those days...

yeah, yesterday was one of them. Blechh. Had no reason that I could think of to put me down in the dungeons, but there I was. Haven't felt that way in years. What the hell. The good news is that I don't feel that way today. And I can go into all the reasons why I felt like that. Maybe at another time. The bottom line is that I can do better than that and I don't want to go there again if I can help it. It takes every ounce of my being to stay focused and on course with what I am trying to accomplish before my time on this planet is up.

Oregon Mini-Tour Oct. 08

Didn't sleep last night. Too busy getting last minute things ready for my Oregon mini-tour. Finally got everything together and left for the airport at about 3:00 am. Just slept on the plane for the two hour flight from New York to Chicago. All I need is to sleep another 3 hours on the Chicago - Portland flight and I'll be good as new. Ready for my concert today at 4:30 pm in Portland. Even though flying is such a pain in the ass these days, I really like to be going to new places to play my music. I used to tour with Mikhail Baryshnikov, and we had our own plane. Now that's high level touring. I used to joke with my kids, when I'm taking limos to the Lear jet, then I have made it. But, for my kind of music, it's quite unlikely. And the carbon footprint of Lear jet travel, well, I'm not so sure I would feel good about it anymore. Anyway, for the moment, I am just thrilled to be playing solo piano concerts of my original music on really nice grand pianos. I will never forget how lucky I am, that I love my work and that I am doing something positive in the world with my music.
love and peace always and everywhere,
Louis

Louis Landon's first blog on Blogger

Starting my first blog while an economic meltdown is occurring. I have gotten some really bad e-mails about where things may be headed economically/politically, and it isn't pretty. I'm just hoping that the people generating these e-mails and sending links to me are wrong and that I'm wrong in believing some of them. This is definitely a case where I WANT to be wrong. So, quickly moving into the positive by thinking of my Oregon solo piano mini-tour coming up fast.

I do need help in Portland, if you know any friends, fans, and/or family, please let them know about the Portland concert in particular.

Here's the schedule:
Sunday, October 12th - 4:30 pm Portland concert tickets: www.brownpapertickets.com/event/42704
Monday, October 13th - 7:00 pm Florence concert info: call 541.999.9720 for info
Tuesday, October 14th - 7:00 pm Eugene concert tickets: www.brownpapertickets.com/event/42702

That's about it for now. This is where I'm going to put my "Camelot" video from the CD Peace Revolution!

love and peace always and everywhere,
