Well you can come along with me ’cause we got a lot of things to do now

So this week I’m going first to Athens, Georgia–which is a little ways outside of Atlanta–and then to San Dimas, California, which is somewhere in the midst of the LA sprawl. And what’s kind of interesting to me is the similarity of the two projects. Now, one of the questions I get asked occasionally, or […]
