What inspires us? I know it is different for everyone, and can even be more complex than just a simple image or thought. It depends on the day, the moment, whom you are with, the music…oh, the music.
Maybe it’s the music, maybe it’s the company, maybe the setting.
Either way, I’m feelin’ Texas.
“Yeah, everybody gotta get away sometime,
Forget about yourself for awhile…
Sometimes you’ve got to grab your world with your own two hands,
Set it spinning off on a course all your own,
Take yourself a big bag for your shoulder,
Find yourself some good times, bring them on back home…
Got no one to blame but your own damn self,
Ok, alright, heaven only know what gonna happen tonight,
Ok, alright, I’m ok, I’m alright…”
Well said, Pat Green.
Ok, it was the song. BUT, with the company of my husband, and the close memory of some special Texas friends whom visited recently, I am so proud to be from the big state.
The recent visit with friends was such a lovely one, hearing some Texas souls in a California world. Maybe it was the twang, the soft, sweet manners, the conversations of familiar places…yeah, it was the Texas.
Don’t get me wrong, I love CA, and our most beloved friends here. In fact, I truly cannot imagine our life anywhere but where we are now. TX just rings my heart. The way an old photo can make you smile.
Heading to China tomorrow. Unlike when I was a child, I am flying there, not digging. Maybe that’s why I am already missing home. One of several homes. But man, do I love the chance of experience. Worth more than words. Cannot wait to feel lost in China town!Posted on 21 April 2012
