You know, on the east coast, i used top hop in the car and road trip for weekends and holidays just about once a month on average – Connecticut mostly, but also Boston, the Cape, and Upstate NY were frequent destinations.
i realized this summer, that all of my trips were far away places and that it meant i hopped a plane or a train, but had no car to hop in with my music and stuff. It was strange! see, since moving here, i haven’t known where to go. In the northeast, you can hop from state to state. Here, everything is . . . big. So, all of my driving has been for work.
It started to feel like my car was my office. It used to be a fun thing for me to pack some snacks, some clothes, m computer, and cds and hit the road to get out of my life for awhile.
So, on Friday, i booked a really cheap room (with free WiFi) in Colorado Springs, and yesterday planned out some places to go and things to see.
Today was just about getting in the car and going somewhere. i have Monday and Tuesday off, and when i have long weekends, staying at home means staying within 6 steps of the office. So, off i go, with a couple of great cds left pic in my car) for my 2 hours of driving, plans for sunrise tomorrow, and a chance to stop here (since no one is waiting for me, i can stop whenever i want! Just outside of the springs is the pic on the right – look at how everything looks dusted with powdered sugar) and notice, that, yes, i landed here a very strange way, but i truly do live in one of the most beautiful places on the planet
