The next best thing to traveling is meeting people from far away places and learning more about them. Also, making them promise to let you stay on their couch when you do the around-the-world trip that you’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t because you don’t have enough couches lined up just yet.
I had a comment on the “Lyrics to Jason Mraz’s Live High” post from Marcelo. He needed some more lyrics, I did my best to get them for him, and he wrote to say thanks, and to let me know he and his friends were starting a Jason Mraz forum in Brazil. How sweet is that?
It shouldn’t suprise me that Mraz has fans in South America. He may not tour there as often as he does Germany or Japan, but what with the InterGoogleTube these days, an artist doesn’t have to show up in your front yard for you to hear what he has to say.
What I would really like to do is plan a trip around the world where I could meet up with other Mraz fans. We could have sing-a-longs, read our favorite Mraz blogs to each other, make fresh Mraz Chocomole, and figure out how to spread our own brand of Jason-flavored diplomacy to others: Do what you love. Be good to others. Eat chocolate.
So, where are the rest of you reading this from? And who wants to become a Mraz Embassy stop for my tour?
