I took to the road this summer.
I gained better sense of our nation. Visiting the states of Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, California, I could really see what influences each state.
In Kentucky it was horseracing, bourbon, rolling hills and well-tailored pants.
In New Mexico it was red and green chilies, sculpture gardens, hot springs.
Other highlights included:
Pick-up basketball in Chicago
Austin, Texas BBQ
The man in 7-11 who told of his run-in with a raccoon.
Ft. Collins Reservoir swimming.
The Utah Salt Flats.
and lastly the High Sierra Music Fest.
It is good to fill up, feel some new air, swim in some new bodies of water...and taste our great nation.
And now back in Los Angeles, where I get to audition for an Audi commerical with my hero, Phil Jackson.
