The windshield has been replaced, and the repair guy was pretty cool. We talked about motorcycles, children, and various adventures had when traveling around the country. The windshield was put back on in such a way as to make it possible to remove intact when I go to do the rest of the body work. So now, all that remains is to finish up the book I'm reading, "The Davinci Code", and load up, and head out. I just finished "Angels and Demons", the precursor to it, and am developing a fine appreciation for Dan Brown's writing. Not quite as god as David Brinn, but definitely in the same league.
I'll be glad when I no longer find it necessary to go ricocheting around the country like a deranged pinball every time I need to find some inner peace. I've heard that there are other methods of introspection and clarity, but the only ones that have ever worked for me involve either thousands of miles of asphalt or significant blood loss, and man, that's just not cool. OK, so maybe it was cool a few years ago, but this isn't the sort of thing that one can keep up indefinitely. It's tiring, you know? I find myself wondering were I'll be sleeping next, which isn't much of a problem, except that I never used to wonder before. That looks like the beginning of a trend that I don't want to begin.
Bah! I'm gonna go read some more. Funny, my lifestyle right now could be described as contemplative, except for the whole nation-wide zoomy thing. Tomorrow night, I'll be in PA, and will likely get a chance to visit with my son, Keane for a few hours. That would be cool, as I haven’t seen him for a while. I’ going to look into the whole phone-post thing, just so I can keep a better record of my travels. We’ll see how that works out.
getting up steam...
