Walked down to Lake Michigan before driving to Madison for my show tonight. Caught this older lady shamelessly sunning herself on the sand with a smile on her face. That's how I hope I am when it's my turn to be old. So many hues of blue in this picture and I'm watching seagulls patiently bob up and down on the little waves and I'm listening to Joni Mitchell sing Blue in the headphones. Everything is connected don't you think?

Had the day off in Des Moines Iowa so I thought it would be a good idea to go to the mall because I don't know why. I ate several handfuls of candy from a 25 cent machine and then I made an office out of a booth at the food court and have been sitting here answering emails and pushing dreams forward etc. when out of nowhere, a fan comes up, wearing my Tshirt and everything! Hahaha it was the most famous I've felt in well, forever. Thanks Susan for making my day. CHICAGO I'll see you tomorrow! Uncommon Ground on Clark 8p!
04.23.15
I bought this shirt from Travis and Lauren at @smallroomcollective and then I gave them a copy of #MediumHero and then Lauren took my picture. It was a very nice exchange. Check these guys out and follow their story!

Just posted a video I directed for country artist Wade Hayes​...a couple years ago he was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer and given a few months to live. Against all expectations, he beat the cancer and wrote a song about it - "Go Live Your Life." Coming up with a concept for the video, we reached out to his fans, asking them to send in photos of their own "survivors." So all the pics in the video are of real people, enjoying their lives, living them to the fullest. My own family has been touched by cancer - most recently my nephew Joncee, but my brother and dad have both suffered through (and beat) a kind of cancer called retno blastoma. So one of those pics is of my dad and Joncee, from last summer when we took the boat out on Lake Pend O'Reille. Also there's a killer drone shot at 2:58. You only get one shot at life guys! Live it up!! 🚀 google 'Wade Hayes Go Live Your Life' to watch
