It's literally been one - long - endless - summer tour.
To be honest, we've been running on fumes for the last couple of years, but now it feels like we're almost out of gas.
The last chapter was 'Give Until It's Gone.' Which we feel like we (gave) until it (was) gone. The next chapter is Ubuntu, which again, requires one too 'give until it's gone.' The problem is we don't have anything left to give...
We've known for a while we don't have the energy to continue. It's just really hard to take a break from something you love so much.
Katie and I are going to ground ourselves and take a good three or four months off. It might be a little weird for us (as we haven't really spent more than 2 weeks in any one place in over five years).
We feel a sabbatical is necessary in order to maintain long term mental, physical and spiritual sustainability.
To our friends in South Africa, we are so sorry that we won't be coming back to see you this year. Our memories from the last trip are still fresh in our minds. We hope and pray we will be able to return as soon as possible. Trying to deliver (and practice) Ubuntu is a challenging task. Katie and I have so much to learn.
Thank you to everybody who has supported us over the years.
We're going to finish the USA tour strong and be ready to come back next year even stronger.
United in vision,
Brian & Katie.
