Today I elected to drive to Austin for my business meeting. I like the look of central Texas from the freeway. It's open fields and largely flat and features cool rivers like the Brazos and the Leon.
I drove along, indulging my musical fancies with everything from Jeff Pearce to Bill Nelson's Vistamix to the Cranberries' first album to Emerson, Lake and Palmer: "Live at the Royal Albert Hall". I admit to knowing all the words to the vocal karn evil songs.
I passed by Baylor University and Mary Hardin Baylor University, two entirely different universities of nearly the same name, and ate Chinese buffet in Waco. The waitperson asked me if I was a teacher.
I like open spaces, within and without, into which I can pour my imagination.
