When I'm traveling, adventure seems so much easier to fall into. I spent a good portion of 2013 on the road touring with my band, Lust-Cats of the Gutters
, and without the pull of day jobs and responsibility, I'm much more likely to say, yes, let's jump that fence. But while wandering through New Orleans cemeteries and getting creeped out at the magical Mütter Museum in Philadelphia, I was left with a cheesy Dorothy Gale-style appreciation of home and the wonderful and weird opportunities I often overlook in Denver. In the new year, I want to recommit to the killer fun and adventures that Colorado has to offer.
