over a month on the road

 we've been on the road for a month and a week. as things happen, i wish i had access to a keyboard and the internet all the time, because there are times i want to share something here and have no way of getting the info. here. by the time i get to the laptop and internet, the inspiration may have disappeared or my energy has drained. unlike our younger generations, i'm not hip on hunt-and-peck typing on my cell phone. those are good for short updates.
do i miss grand rapids? yes
do i miss my friends? yes, and no. the internet is great for keeping in touch. oh, yeah.
do i miss the press? yes and no. i miss the people. i miss being a part of a team working toward accomplishing a goal that benefits the masses. i don't miss the nine-to-five ... who would? i don't miss having to be on time. I don't miss having to compromise my beliefs.

i know we can't do this forever, but i'm really enjoying taking my time with mr. f and coming and going as we please.
we encounter " ... a homeless person, who looks like he/she had lived well-to-do up until recently. It's unnerving. That could be any one of us. The vision is unnerving." At some point, we have to settle down and re-join society.

i do want to get involved with a community ... hence listening to austin's city council meeting ... but i'm not rushing to join anything yet.

in the past few days, i have been getting antsy. antsy to get to that utopia, settle down and get involved. is it albuquerque i'm antsy for? maybe. it seems like the one place mr. f and i agree on.
