“There was nowhere to go but everywhere"*

My trusty orange backpack is packed
with Levi's and plaid shirts with pearl buttons,
my little black notebook, 
two charged cameras,
reading material, 
and mixed CDs for road trips across the Mighty MO.


Train schedules have been checked.
Boarding passes has been printed.


The road is calling.
I only have one short week to offer it.
It will be just enough time to get my shoes dusty
and clear my head
and fill my heart.




*From On the Road by Jack Kerouac

  1. Can't wait to hear your latest show me stories.

    And just so you know, I waved across the other side of MO this past weekend.
