A beautiful dream

I'm at my aunt and uncle's house in Fort Worth- my entire car has been unloaded into their garage/dining room. 
It has been fun so far-
A cousin and his wife and daughter are here for the weekend as well, and it is actually really fun to just be surrounded by family. 

I will admit that I am a bit distracted though, I wasn't quite ready to leave Tallahassee, and it was a really long drive.  

I've heard life compared to a video game before, A Fork in the Road: The Tallahassee Time
in a rather interesting story that I actually have a small role in, but I would say that this journey was a bit like that as well. 
I started off on a journey, armed with a gift of beefjerky, and along the way conveniently met people that would assist me in ways that I needed. I met Eric Peterson - he ended up stopping at the hotel for the night, in order to protect me from dangerous strangers, and had a lunch today with another cousin, who gave me a map and advice on finishing my quest to Fort Worth. 

However, most of my trip was spent listening to music, singing loudly, and wishing that I had something to write with. 
I feel that my level of angst at the moment is such that I could easily be churning out copious amounts of words: lyrics, poems, or short stories. I had so many great ideas today, I'm sure of it! I just had no way to notate, other than a few ridiculous haikus that I texted to myself. Haha. Nerd. The few other bits i do remember I'll have to work through soon. I should get one of these for future trips, or to just find something positive in all the time I'll be spending driving while in Texas.

Ha! Brilliant! I am going to enjoy reading through this site. I am a HUGE advocate of voice recorders... my journal would be non-existent without one. Definitely invest.

I bet you 7 caramel delight girl scout cookies and a baby penguin that we into one another at least one more time.

See ya when I see ya!
