First off, a big thank you for liking, following, or checking out my project. This is not just a musical journey, but it is also about community. Roads are powerful to us – they can bring us together and drive us apart.
We live in a world where people seek to find the negative differences first, and then try to find the positives after that. Absurd! While the diversity in America is engaging and wonderful, let’s not forget that we really have more in common than we think. We all want to be loved. We all want to be heard. We all need a place to sleep and some food. There is so much that unites us, we should embrace those ideals more each day.
It’s so easy with technology these days to forget that there is a live person sitting behind a computer. I hope that with this project you reach out to your community, wherever you are to see “where the road takes you”. Take a wrong turn on your way home one day and see what you find. You may find a store you’ve always wanted in your neighborhood, or a local cafe where you can work unfettered, or a community center where you
can finally take that oil painting class you’ve always wanted to take. You may make a new friend.
In the coming weeks, I’ll be writing about everything related to this travelogue. This blog will be live pre, during, and post journey, so keep checking back for updates. Next week I’ll be in Lake Tahoe for the annual Lincoln Highway Association’s conference. You’ll see daily updates and pictures from the road.
Once again, thank you for being a part of this journey. See you on the road!
