Alesana’s Shawn Milke Signs Off With “A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words”
Today is: Wednesday, August 25, 2010
Where I am: Somewhere in the U.S.A., cross-country drive home
Where I am actually: keeping my brother Chris (who also is our driver) company in the front of the bus.
Time of day: 11:32 a.m.
What I am listening to: “The Ocean” by Mae
The summer is drawing near its end. The days are getting slightly shorter, though it is hard to even notice. The nights are getting a little cooler, at least where I live on the East Coast. If you go to school in the fall, your mind is no doubt drifting back to what the heck you want to do with your life once you escape the shackles of seven periods a day with a short, crappy lunch sandwiched in the middle. If you spent the summer away from home you are either happy or sad or both, that your summer lovin’ is about to discover its untimely conclusion. If your summer found you doing something you love with people that you love then you are no doubt going to close your eyes and relive the memory over and over again. I closed my eyes a lot on the long drive home, not to sleep, but to remember. What a summer. What a tour. What a good time I have had sharing my experiences and my thoughts with each one of you throughout the whole process. To pay my thanks for the joy you all have brought me by joining me here at revolvermag.com, I made sure I had my camera with me the whole way home. Don’t get me wrong, I could go on and on for pages about the amazing summer that I had and the travels I experienced to get home; but as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Allow me to close my eyes…
One Final Question:
What was the coolest thing you did or saw this summer? And Warped Tour does not count.
One Final Song Quote:
“Clap your hands and lift your hoof, and I’ll try to like horses.” – “Panda” by Mew (the line is a bit abstract, but if you hear the way he sings it, you will absolutely melt)
We have reached the end of my summer blog. I really hope you all enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Until we meet again, always remember to believe in yourself and trust in your own decisions because the last person in the world you should ever let down is yourself.
