Tuesday...

... the Wife and I spent most of today driving the backroads of Meigs, Roane, Loudon, and Monroe counties... we had no place to be.. no roadmap... and no timeline... just slowly cruising the narrow roads of a few rural counties... the elements played along well for most of the trip.. a few thunderstorms forced us to close the sunroof... but other than that, it was a very nice drive...

... no place to be and no timeline... it feels perfect just to type that...

... a lot of people need to be driven by a goal... they strive... my goals have nothing to do with being a certain place... or arriving at a certain time... sure, I do have goals... but I guess they are just different from the norm.... today, after all, was a Tuesday... a day of toil for most... soon, it will be just another day of toil for me... just like it has been in the past... but today?... in a way, it wasn't a Tuesday at all... today was just a day of pleasure out with my mate... today was a day when we bought ice cream in the rain... today was a day when we pulled off to the side of the road to watch Canada Geese root junebugs out of the freshly mown grass...

... today was a great day to have no place to be..

Bullshit So Far

I strive to be more like you, but it is a struggle to be so laid back. I am destined to remain a tormented soul.

By the way, in Atlanta, there is this ice cream chain called Brusters, and if you get ice cream on a rainy day, you get the 2nd scoop for free!! I would be fat during our rainy season if they had a Bruster's down here...
