the drive to mexico: day one.

January 4, 2010

reading, pennsylvania to indianapolis, indiana.

impossible to post any photos today,
as we realized in the tip of west virginia that-
we had left the camera battery charging
in the bedroom in pennsylvania.
(hopefully that’s the only thing we forgot)

perfectly surmountable though-
phoned a friend, asked him to
overnight the battery to
our next stop, tulsa.
we should be back in photo-business by
tomorrow afternoon.

drove in wintry mix all day today.
caught us by surprise as
we hadn’t even checked the weather.
we sort of had it in our heads
that we were setting off into
immediately warmer weather.
not so.
it is 12° here in indianapolis now.
and there are miniscule ice crystals falling.

i slept most of the day,
and justin drove all 10 hours.

that is humiliating to admit.
what am i contributing to this trip?

well so far-
i held the computer on my lap
while we watched fools rush in
and i asked the questions
when we played trivial pursuit

we listened to several hours of
a million miles in a thousand years
by donald miller.
that, is a fascinating book, thus far.
all about the storylines of life,
living a story that’s worthwhile.
it makes us think deep thoughts.
which is perfect
as we embark on this new chapter.

tomorrow – to TULSA!

    don’t sell yourself short, it is very important to be the holder of the laptop and the asker of trivial pursuit questions.

    looking forward to hearing about the rest of the trip
