day 113. welcome to america...

the breakfast

(i'm cleaning out my drafts folder and see there are quite a few thoughts that never made it to the page.)

ok, i've now been in the USA for about a week, and i think i should be playing jaime brown's "welcome to america"... it's nice to skip around a town and see good friends. for the last three nights, i hug out with megan (a friend from austria) and now i'm with my buddy steve an old high school buddy. for the past two days, i've kicked around town, greasing my bearings and catching up on a few projects with digidave.

a few weeks ago a former contributor accused me of taking a vacation, and from what i've learned... one can not listen to negative opinions... long before this journey started, i faced the same negativity and mental oppression. never in my wildest thoughts would i think that someone who's all into a "peer-to-peer" society would get up in my grill questing one's impact on community...

finally, i met up with them... (and no, i won't name them... i hope maybe they will come around), but from what i've seen - they are as stubborn as the reflection that stares at me every morning. nonetheless, i know it's time to kick out all of my miss conceptions of what constitutes community and focus on my ability to capture what i'm seeing.

ps - the last line was said in a casey kasem voice.

in the meantime, i have a song for the rest of you...

Loving you
Isn't the right thing to do
How can I ever change things
That I feel

If I could
Maybe I'd give you my world
How can I
When you won't take it from me

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way

Tell me why
Everything turned around
Packing up
Shacking up is all you wanna do

If I could
Baby I'd give you my world
Open up
Everything's waiting for you

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way
