Hello from the land of Rocky Mountains and Chipotle!
We're driving out of Wyoming and back to Colorado, streaming the new Avett Brothers album. The songs aren't named individually on NPR, but my favorite song so far is the one with these lyrics:
"There's no falling back to sleep
Once you waken from the dream
Now I'm rested and I'm ready
And I'm listening to that song while I watch a storm slide down over the mountains, then drift on over the gorgeous, golden flat-lands that seem to stretch out to forever. Lightning pulses against the dark sky in time with every drumbeat.
Somehow, even though this day is over, I feel like I'm at a beginning. That's a good feeling. But I guess every minute, night or light or in-between, is a new beginning ... if you want it to be one. Sometimes you just have to take a deep breath (... Or a flying leap? :) and turn the page. Stop re-reading what has happened and bookmark your heart against the new.
Suck-fact: The trip tumblr doesn't seem to be working anymore. The app is annoyingly buggy. So I might use the blog to post a few pics over the next week. I'm blogging from my phone, so thanks for ignoring my many typos (and lack of usual formatting). Hopefully, le Tumblr will fix itself before tomorrow. (Maybe I should do this every now and then to change things up anyway :)
I'll end with a few snaps from today. The hotel staircase is The Stanley Hotel, where some scene in Dumb and Dumber was filmed. So,of course, Chase had to stop there.
Wishing you a dark and stormy night. And a new starting page. As Anne Shirley says, "tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it."
