It’s been a busy month, I’ve been away from Duluth a lot and after this week I’ll be leaving again for a tour out to the East. So this week I’m getting caught up on stuff around here, spending some time with my kids and going for a good walk with Rueben. I had asked the kids to keep up with the dog poop in the yard while I was away last weekend, but I think they must have misunderstood, since it’s all still there. My daughter got some spraypaint chalk though, and has painted all the poop yellow so I can find it easier this morning. The sidewalk says “I love raccoons”, too. It looks like we got tagged by a tween street gang. I’d better go pick up the poop now, it’s only going to confuse the neighbors. This weekend is the Waterfront in Menomonie, Mid-West Music Festival in Winona, and an afternoon set with Mikkel on Sunday at the 331 before I head out for Manhattan, stop by if you can.

We never walked more than 10 steps at a stretch today, Rueben and I. We’d just get going a little and she’d catch another scent under the slush and we’d have to stop while she worked out the details. I’ve long since given up on asking her to move it along, unless she tries eating some questionable bit of goo, we just follow her nose around our route til we get home again. Today, though, it was 50 something degrees out and the melting ice and snow uncovered a mighty treasure trove of scents like tons and tons of dog crap, rotting newspapers, wet fur, mud, and oddly enough, the interior of the comic book store where I bought my copies of “Ghost Rider” when I was 7. I stood for a long time at the corner where that smell was, staring off into space and breathing as deeply as I could. Why this smell was here now was a mystery, but suddenly it occurred to me that the intensely shy, introverted and melancholy little boy in that comic book shop was still very much alive and as I meditated on that thought and Rueben intently sniffed what may have been a pizza box, a car passed and splashed us both with gallons of cold dirty water that smelled like pee.
