On the road again... any excuse to escape my problems and troubles in the world. Me and my good friend John simply packed up a few warm jackets and our cameras and music and headed out through the National Park last week. It was a simple adventure.
When I see these photos I remember my glee when I felt the wind sweep through my hair and the sun shine brightly down on us as we drove. I was sooo happy.
Come this week and I'm freezing sitting at home and simply not in the mood to head out and fake smiles for everyone. I was given a Good-bye letter this week by another dear friend of mine. I don't think I've recovered from the shock of it all because those last moments with that friend I didn't know we were saying our very last goodbyes.
Come this week, I am torn between trying to be happy and trying to let it all out and dwell in my sadness. But I've been through this sadness with my friend before. We go through plenty of the sweetest and beautiful ups but sometimes we do have downs. This week was definitely a downer. Yet I'm getting stronger as the years go by so the tears creep up on me less and less.
As I head out again tonight to a noisy and crowded club I hope I can for a moment, forget my quiet pain, hold my close friend's hand tightly, and forget for a moment that life does go on. Smile again and think about those mini road-trips with my friend John and note that a good Runaway is just a phone call away.
