Do you have a place to go?

In sad country songs, people say they “have no place to go.”

I always have a place to go. Perhaps too many places. And too much to do when I get there and too many people I love. The world is big. I want to see Italy. And go back to France. I want to see the white cliffs of Dover.

Here in Nebraska there are many interesting students. Students who act on the world. Who do things. Who don’t wait for things to come to them. That’s my kind of people. Listening to the music and making magic. Not waiting for your ex to send you checks so you don’t have to work. Not drifting over the high plains. But writing, thinking, travelling, working, and raising your children which is not just a dream, it’s work and fun and it’s absolutely thrilling to see them come into their own.

I’m stopping now because I have some place to go. I’m reading tonight at the House of Loom.
