Day off - Chicago-2

My brother e-mailed me to let me know that Enid Franklin died at the weekend. She was one of my mother's best friends and one of those non-blood relatives that you always referred to as an "auntie" as she'd known me for my entire life. I hadn't seen her in a long while, but we still always corresponded at Christmas, which was a link to the past that I always enjoyed. Consequently I've been a little sad today and spent some time thinking about times long gone by. It's strange to have to deal with these things when you're on the road, like piecing together threads of stories from different worlds.

There was a 6.30pm conference call arranged between Bono (Dublin), The Edge (Los Angeles), Steve Matthews (London) and myself (also London) to blow the cobwebs off our brains and discuss the reincarnation of the Vertigo Tour.

I was planning on resurrecting the tour diary today, being the day we were scheduled to fly to Auckland for the load-in tomorrow. However, its now old news that the remainder of the tour dates have been postponed, so Im not going anywhere further than the corner cafe. Its been a very weird week indeed - much akin to driving into a wall.
