Family Reunion
Seattle – San Francisco. Travel day.

I was a bit all over the place this morning.  It ended up being a late one last night, running all over town delivering cell phones (don’t ask) and I needed to be up at a reasonable hour as Smasher and I had promised each other we’d get on top of the Glastonbury video stuff. Breakfast was a meeting of the dazed but we did get it together to make the departure deadline.

Long I have maintained that my favourite flight is a flight from anywhere to San Francisco, so I confess to having been perhaps a little over-excited en route. It’s a year or more since I’ve been to the city at the end of the rainbow and even though the weather forecast isn’t the best (as ever) it’s a thrill to have a day or two at ‘home’.

Our flight didn’t get us in until the early evening but I still made the most of a night off here, meeting some friends at a favourite restaurant and inevitably going on to a bar or two.  Funny, it’s ten years now since I lived here but I still feel like a native, taking a streetcar rather than a cab, walking back down Market Street (still an open psychiatric unit, it seems) just to take it all in. Old places have closed, new places spring up, but still it feels like a family reunion.

Latest Willie's Diary

21 Nov, 2006
Within the bands entourage (certainly by comparison to the crews clockwork scheduling) travel departure times are often a little loose. This morning was especially so, due to three contradictory memos which had been emailed out last night and this morning.

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.
