When you’re on the road, you have cd’s stacked a mile high, you’ve gone from 40 degree weather to 80 in a day and the fact that somehow you still haven’t packed right…even though you’ve been to California four times before…this same year? Yeah, that’s just part of winging it when the time calls for a concert. The only consistent outcome was that I never had enough socks, I actually packed my bathing suit this time and most importantly M had made the mix cd’s that blew my mind.
Most rely on school and a basic outline of how they will eventually grow up, meaning in some fashion ‘so and so’ gave them some kind of timeline that they can follow. Yet somehow we ended up on this off beaten path, that consists of a red car, glowsticks (when the lights would go out inside of the car) and a trunk that never seemed to be empty of at least one water bottle. Both M and I grew up in a matter of months on these trips. Discussions well into the early sunrise of the morning, while going about 80 mph in the desert.
And it all came down to one line… ‘Learning on the Go.”
