out and in again…

in a way even if I am not officially home yet, I’m home already.  I have a little atlanta-ing to attend to like a simple errand.  I have zipped otherwise pell mell about the land some and thus have been out and now I’m in again…

NOLA, Shreveport are the main town’s stayed in however I got a peek at baton rouge and alexandria as well, Louisianna.  I saw the truth that if heaven is a place on earth, Texarkana  says so only by contrast!  also I technically saw little rock which is around some shadowy corners in the night… It may have been a dream that one but texarkana was not – it was a fine double rubber sheeter.  Thank you Arkansas!  Acorss the line into Texas, some more of the oddity that Texas has a scenery other than flat dry and hot is East texas Greenville saw the cops escourt a passenger ran afoul of his seat buddy… why is still unclear but not the response…a shuttlin back to a main stop town and whatever the wait for another ride out awaits those who run afoul of being bus capably social and or behaved…. mt pleasant was indeed.  Dallas has a Lake? well I’ll be!  Texas was there to african cuisine as I had listed a location on a college paper ten years later I got to visit… haha on me I didn’t like what I got much.  Maybe it was Memphis was a night stop but still had a feel to it – nashville I’d been to already and I met a friend in chattanooga for lunch and took them hotel pamphlets into my suitcase! 😉 and such was fairly pretty tennessee.  and thus atlanta to get after a bit of on the ground opinion, a hair cut I think and or a tour of awwriter’s apartment… nope not the raisin in the sun one this one is the gone with the wind one…silly me!  I still could use a ghost story of success. 😉  we’ll see.


now as to the spirituality of this adventure, I did and didn’t plan.  I rolled into towns with no information sometimes not even the areacode to begin hunting and pecking up a cab to the best choice a cabbie milking fares could invent!  I saw usery.  I saw a little kindness.  I obviously avoided being the big target somewhat and thus stayed safer – yes I kid you not, I hadn’t left the area too soon when instead of me the cabbie in nola gets robbed.  oh I met the kindly homeless smelled evry ratty odor of a scheme and still managed only slight cigarette loss and or minor change IF I felt like it.  I honestly felt I had some choice! 😀    I stayed in some serious fancy and overpriced at any priced toilets would be the word coming to mind.  I managed y best at impromptu all across the basic South blind lost clueless more often than not and forced to notice that if i learned one thing all trip – past the mechanical “I can” which duh, I did already train hopping bus surviving no clue no map o prizes seemingly anywhere but oo the dark alley…nope not. that way 😉  I mean I can do mechanically a lot.  however, Its far more desperate out there.  it’s sometimes a buzzing wail of voice as if a swarm of mosquitos of can you help me out?  cigarettes are far easier to lose than one’s wallet or life. just a wee hint. 😀


yet I tread the last of my details.  I dread the last moment toward the doom of it’s now over.  the party saw dawn.  it in fact seems to have only been a diversion for a few prescious instants the last ten some days.  I found the magic of lousiana food in a tourist area by golly how rude.  I found out I had it far better all along.  I might in fact been  chasing the wind.



(I suppose the last detail – the 30 some pages of notes on it with a few more in directions/scratch notes…. I ought punish SOMEONE with… I’m not going to bother posting it.  the why is simple, I might want friends or employment! 😀 later in life 😀 )

((as to my few crappy phone pictures… I can’t do anything about them til I’m home as to my luck with borrowed computers and cables.  I’m sure to share a one or two soon enough… maybe.))

finishing up today actually. looks like I have just enough time to hit the “bank” and mary mac tea room atlanta not that and margaret mitchell house too and such will expire my time out on the road. 🙂 plus visability a low vision devies store for intel on the local doctors perhaps it’s nice to hear oppinions not read preselected ones. then a trim up in the “home town” waiting on a ride onto the base maybe sis’ll be in the mood for bacon lettuce fried green tomato sandwiches at the independant type diner on the way home as a peace offering 😀 and by way of thanks. too 😀 — but now to check out or I have time for NOTHING! 😉 waves (glad the your world stuff shows some improvements :D)
