the big empty
i now see why folks from the east get enraptured (is that a word?)with the west. it's big and majestic and barren. it gives you time to think. it's more than the old west. in fact, i could give two craps about the old west unless it's in a movie. it's something more magical than that.
because i don't see high plains drifter out here. i don't see the magnificent seven out here. i see something more zen than that.
maybe it's the peace and quiet. maybe it's the fact that i have finally mentally gotten on board with the great american road trip. i'll be thinking on this for a while.
