Roadie, ME Newsletter, Vol. 3, Issue 47
Still feeling pretty good about my hit-and-run weekend.
I reconnected, was able to help out, catch up and just be me – away from home.
I’m still hearing the hum of the tires.
Could be I’m still reeling from the 3 c’s of road cuisine: coffee, chips and candy.
I’m pretty sure I’ve never fallen asleep while eating, so there must be something to this combination.
After six hours of alternating myself silly between David Cook, Lifehouse and Kid Rock, here’s what I know for certain: I’ve got to figure out the voice memo feature on my new phone. ‘ kept having to pull off the highway to write stuff down. Tried to make it coincide with gas stops, but sometimes I didn’t need fuel, and was worried I’d forget the lyrics or the tunes or the melodies that popped up complete and completely logical. Inspired by songs that I heard and signs that I passed, people I’d left and places I was still headed.
If I thought too long about any one thing, melancholy would threaten the buzz. So, I just kept driving and singing along. Imagining how really good it all could be. And asking myself, “Why not?”
This Thanksgiving, I'm wishing you God Speed and safety as your travel to your blessings.
