Deja Vu

"It was sunsets that taught me that beauty sometimes only lasts for moments, and it was sunrises that showed me that all it takes is patience to experience it all again."
a.j. lawless

I've traveled this road before, in a different year , in a different day, in a different me.
At times lost , I am certain. At times seeking, I want to think so. At times escaping, perhaps all too often.

I've found being someplace is not truly being, if you long for somewhere else.

And so it is now, I long for California, I long for the trail, I long for the road. I suppose it is how it has always been for me.

"When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be practical is madness. To surrender dreams - this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness - and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be"
Miguel de Cervantes

I am tired

" I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands. I will fight no more forever. "
Chief Joseph, Nez Perce

I am struggling to reintegrate into life away from the trail.... Much has been written about the difficulty of this endeavor. So, I will not regurgitate that which has already been covered.

But, I am sitting in a pub in Texas having to refute the idea that illegal aliens (Mexicans , my ancestors) are the root of all of America's ills.

Damn !
