day off = happy actual birthday jon. he got this sweet book with amazing photography in it, so we were all admiring it.
the days we spent in merrillville were both very relaxing and very stressful. the calls home both comforting and worrisome. of course the fires were on everyone's minds, but everyone is safe, and the tour must go on, so on it went.
with all that said, tonight's show was pretty great. also, the sunset leading up to it was probably one of the most beautiful ones i have ever seen. back inside, certain songs definitely had a bit of added meaning, especially when jon threw in 'sorrow' for the 1st encore song. from stage he said that it brought him a bit of closure to worrying about all the problems going on at home.
let's hope we have some actual closure to it all soon.
