Written Saturday Morning - I’m sitting here writing all of this on a shitty ass computer without Internet access. I’m currently in Vegas and have been on a nasty 3-day bender, which concludes this evening after the much anticipated White Stripes show. I somehow managed to get tickets for it via my youthful charm and wonderful wit.
Let’s see…stories from the road thus far. Well the drive out here was uneventful. The only excitement sort of came when we had to sneak the dog into the room everywhere we went. My mother and I didn’t really speak about anything, despite her efforts to be upbeat and positive. I was more interested in reading and keeping to myself. We must have looked at each and spoken and then said, “Huh?” or “What?” about 200 times. It was ridiculous. The end of the trip there left nothing but the end. The scenery of the Rockies is breathtaking though. I have never scene such beauty in nature. It is really awe-inspiring. Those formations humble you. The oranges, yellows, greens, and burnt browns that have the tendency to change , just as a fanned out rainbow has hues running into one another, are etched into my brain.
Wirtten this morning - Well today is my mother's birthday. She has a new life and essentially a new lease, that for now seems to be an upgrade. Though never underestimate the power of intelligent feeling people as opposed to those who are merely living in a world of interest rates and generic cola and then scream porfanity at ball games. I don't know. I don't like vegas. It's really plastic but the casino's are like cathedrals and well I'm up 1800 bucks on the weekend and ...well...had some fun with the opposite sex. These are all good things in my current traveling social consumerism stage...Anywho...I'm looking forward to my jaunt into NYC...hopefully people will find the time to meet up and chat a tad...and then...and then my friends...it's back to...(well wouldn't you like to know...mwwhahahahaha)
