At the beginning of this month, I made one of my dreams come true: I bought a tour van and started living in it! I liquidated almost all of my worldly possessions and left the Spider Den for good, with a nostalgic tear in my eye. I love being mobile, and I am enamoured with the road life, so to switch to this lifestyle kind of fits like a glove. The only possession I passed off with a little hesitance was my beloved gold Ford Taurus station wagon, Gilda. What a chariot she was. But alas, I do not need two vehicles, so I’ve committed full time to Flo, my van. It’s been a great first few weeks with her, she definitely feels more and more like home as I adjust her cabin to meet my needs. With the release of my EP, Songs From the Spider Den Volume One, is the close of the chapter of The Spider Den, and I look forward to writing the next one on Highway One during my travels across Canada this Summer.
