While drinking my morning coffee, I decided to watch part of a 'Elvis Costello, Spectacle with Bruce Springsteen' that I'd tivo'd a few days back. As usual, I was more reading and doing other things than watching, but one phrase caught my attention .... "It wasn't what I was expecting". I've been thinking about this for the majority of the day. Just what was I expecting? Was this what I was going to be, where I was going to live, what I was going to look like ..... Or, is this simply my present and I should be figuring out what I'm expecting for the future? Thanks alot Elivs & Bruce.
The first day of our vacation, is usually about getting somewhere .... moving on down the road. And, that we did. Today we left Mandeville (just a sneeze north of New Orleans) and drove to Tallahassee, FL. Usual first day travel ... appreciated some tile work in a bathroom at the Mississippi border and watched some birds have a fight in an Oak tree, collected dozens of fliers at the Florida border visitor center, lunch at Ruby Tuesdays, book shopping at Barnes & Noble, a stroll through a mall, Dinner at Subway because we weren't very hungry after the large lunch, and a night of each others company at the local Comfort Inn, where we'll start making our plans for tomorrow .... either Gainesville or Tampa.
