A View

One of the things that I (kate) love about this life that I lead is that I get to travel...no, I'm not crazy about long security lines and swollen ankles after long flights but the fact that you can wake up in the morning and be in one place and hours later arrive in another place is amazing. Or on tour you go to sleep in one city on the bus and open the door and step off the bus in another city. It blows my mind. And makes me ridiculously happy every time. Travel brings loved ones together. Travel brings adventure. Travel means learning. Travel has a way of making you appreciate your home & what you have. One of my favorite things to do is look out the window and listen to music. Seriously...I can look out of a plane or car window for many an hour and be perfectly content. I love seeing the vastness of this world. I love seeing the clouds and seeing the sun shining through them. I am somewhat secretly obsessed with the sky and the stars and planes. Sidenote....I could sit and look at the stars for endless hours. I guess it's just that I love that planes get you closer to the stars. Flying at night is also super cool cause people always look down at the lights below...which is great but I love to look up and see the stars...surrounded by sky that is almost black and then there are these bright shining stars above you. Seriously. OK...nerd alert. I'm done.

The first couple shows of this run we had to fly...so I was listening to Bon Iver's latest record & took these pics:

Best part was that all these flights lead me to this spot:

Lucky girl I am.
