nahko here – checking in with all of you ohana out there staying in tune with our MEDICINE movement this summer 2011. 
and what a full summer it has been already. 
welcome to august and mercury retrograde.
the east is beautiful – mosquitoes are maddening – and the guy at the gas station wants to know when we’re going to play a show for the truckers.  good question.  it all can be done.
did a little kayaking in the adirondaks on long lake with the wedding party – took a wild hike with a beautiful, inspiring family into the mountains and got caught in heavy thunder being storm…the little ones saying things like, “I don’t know why you live in your van.  And I really don’t know why my bathroom is your bathroom.” (it was for a night cuz we parked outside their house…)
“I’m part Seminole!” one kid friend shouted after they discovered I was part native – the other kid shouted, “I’m Harry Potter!” 
As well, Ydine was running up the mountain the little one yelled, “How fast do Indians run?”  Pretty good for a Cuban/Norwegian.  
So much fun with the horns and megaphone – constantly causing a ruckus town to town.
