road trip

My nephew Blake out for a drive.
I leave tonight (after work) for Socal to visit the lil guy in the picture. He's my nephew and is turning one this weekend. I'm looking forward to going home for this, to see family, and see an army of friends. I'm driving out which makes this that much more of a treat, for me. I wish I could hitch up the trailer and take with, but I'm not staying very long. Only 6 days and 3 of them will be spent driving. I'm hoping to sneak an hour or two out of my drive time to stop and visit Quartzsite rather than pass it by like I always have. The other place I want to see is Tombstone. I've read it's not really much fun, but one of my guilty pleasures is visiting historic western towns and biographies of the historical characters who made them famous.

Which brings me to what I mentioned in my last post. My meditations has brought me to toying with the idea of writing for a living. I'm not sure exactly what I'd write about, and still need to



broken trail

Ever since Naomi and Ricki's visit I've been contemplating what it is I really want to do when I hit the road. I had this plan to just roam and see anything that caught my fancy. I'd do this until I saw all I could or burnt out and then make my way to the next state. I'm perfectly ok with doing this still, but Ricki did give me a few things to think about before he left. I need to meditate on what this all means still

This is not actually me


a brief sojourn into a new life?

I was semi surprised by a friend this weekend when she called and asked if they could crash the night at my place. She and a fellow rennie (renaissance) were on their way to Arizona to work the fair there. It was great getting caught up and making a new friend in the process. Turns out the friend is something of a motivational speaker who has an internet show/podcast. Long story short he pointed out a few things about me that I never considered. It was nice to hear that and I guess that I've given all the negative enough attention on my own. I need to figure out how to make these talents feed me in the future if that's to become my path.

Wish me luck
