kimya dawson and me after the show (taking a power nap), howie & son's pizza, visalia, ca., 4.26.08
it has always been a goal of mine to see the magically terrific kimya_dawson_ perform live. so, i hopped in my truck this past weekend and made the 3 hour pilgrimage up north to do just that.
shortly after leaving the confines of the city, i rolled down my window and breathed in the essence of farm....something that always reminds me of 'home.' i would've never known this little town of visalia ever existed had kimya not drawn me there....the next morning a power outage forced a majority of old town to close shop for the day, but that didn't stop me from havin' a gay old time. nuh uh! i still had a blast exploring a bunch of great old historical buildings and walking through some very gritty but charming back alleys. mmmmmmm, brick and mortar!!!!!
i do believe i'll go back there someday....
