Hitting the ground

I'm out of the hospital. Feeling stronger every day. Anna has been amazing. Aaron has left. He has the jacket. I hope he stays safe. What a guy.

When we burst through the door and he saw us it was like he knew us already. I guess he had been dreaming about us. I saw the look of fear in his eyes. He looked exhausted. Without thinking I just ran at Kronstad - he seemed as surprised as I was. He fell backwards through this huge window, he grabbed me, I fell with him. It's all just a blur after that. I remember thinking that this was all just a dream...but then I hit the ground.

But somehow, through all this pain of the body and the heart, I feel stronger, more alive and am grateful that I was able to overcome these challenges. These experiences will find a place in my life and soul and music and my love for Anna.

We leave tonight for Montreal. Maybe we'll see Aaron again. Maybe not. Who knows...

Strange stuff...

Also found this strange pic in the pile of papers too.

And this was written on the back:

Where is this? You think He's keeping Aaron there?

A few steps back...

Sometime you have to go back in order to move forward...

We are in New York again. We visited the location of the fashion show where Kronstad messed shit up. I went up to the fire-escape to look around. I think, if I my memory is right, he stormed down this big staircase so he must have been hiding up there for a while. I found something really weird, a little stash of documents. This old ID was stuck between two slats, like it had fallen out of his bag or something. There were some other photos and stuff but they don't seem important.

I can't make out the Russian writing. Anyone have an idea? Anna never learned how to read Russian

Anna is off trying to track down some old friend of her father's. I probably shouldn't have let her go off by herself. Shit.

Surrender Completely

The thoughts are scattered today. I'm in this place of doubt and confusion. I've been stuck in this cloud for weeks now and it's all adding up to this storm on the inside and outside and it's sucking the life out of me. I've tried to ignore it in my music, in the sunshine, in the bottom of the bottle, but it's too much. Everything feels like a nightmare. I can't wake up.

Miles has been great and helped us greatly but now we have to go out on our own. My love for Anna has bound me to her troubles and I welcome, cherish, the opportunity to be with her on this journey. It is a union deeper than I've ever known or ever will know. Her pain is mine and mine her's and I surrender completely to it.

We are going to New York - to retrace our steps, try and find something we missed before. We need Aaron Street. We need truth. Miles assures us that Aaron knows what happened to Anna's father. And I trust Miles.

True Original

Working on a new song. It's hard being away from the band. But we started this one before the tour and some of the mixes are coming together. Here's a sample. Hope you like it. This one is pretty different from the others. kind of sad but hopeful. A little jazzy. Staying focused on my music is the only way I know how to deal with this stress. I'm blessed that way. More soon.
