The last time I was in London, I walked and ran barefoot every day around Shepherds Bush, Hammersmith and through Hyde and Holland Parks.  This trip, I have chickened out a little bit.  Staying in northeast London, Barbican/Clerkenwell/Islington area.  A little too much broken glass around here.  So I ran and walked 6 miles this morning in my Target water shoes.  My screwy achilles tendon and my permanently sore ankle seem to like barefooting best, even and especially on pavement.  But I went with the water shoes today and it worked out ok.

I’m playing a gig tonight with Rodney Crowell, Jedd Hughes and The Flatlanders at Barbican Centre in London.
