Driving, Driving, Driving

Life for the past two months:

"What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? — it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-by. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies."

8 years Ago Today

Tucson, Arizona- September 11th 2001: Between 6 and 7AM

Nokia original sized cell phone ringing on my night stand. Don, "Eric, we're under attack. The Twin Towers have been hit! Call your sisters! They live in the city, right?" I couldn't get through. Not for several hours but Mom said they were fine.

After watching TV I wasn't sure if classes were canceled for the day but I walked to campus regardless. A ghost town. Whispers, muffled noise and even an more desolate, dried and thirsty Tucson. A University devoid of youth.

As far west as Tucson, AZ one of the first things I remember seeing was a fellow classmate, outside the English Lit. building, alone and draped in an American flag.

Demento

I'm currently bouncing around the nation for work. I've driven through 8 states: Virgina, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Nevada over three days. This makes my 8th cross country road trip and never once have I taken the same route. Stories, pictures, whatever coming soon but for now I don't have much to report other than having tried to call into the Michaelangelo Signorelli show on Sirius Out Q Radio while driving through Oklahoma and couldn't get through, but the bottom line is: Go to the National Equality March!!

In the meantime enjoy these demented videos I found:
