somewhere

Why “SOMEWHERE”?  Because tonight I want  to believe that I belong somewhere, that life is more than noise and chaos, that there is a place where peace and compassion are  celebrated.  Because tonight the world is a lonely, dark, unforgiving void trying to suck me in.  That’s why I write, that’s why I listen to music.  The darkness can’t touch me when my mind fills with words and beautiful music.  

“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.”
Maya Angelou

Years ago when I moved from Pennsylvania to Florida, Homosassa was a sleepy fishing village with just one traffic light. Today, unfortunately, it is a bustling fishing village with three traffic lights and a new WalMart. Being a retired trucker, I've seen the continental United States coast to coast and north to south hundreds of times and don't care to venture out of Florida again. Driving was a great adventure and a great job. We don't get too excited about things around here. Tourists enjoy the river and the manatees. Snowbirds come down to share their northern wisdom and spend their money. I sit on the front porch and watch the world go by.......and write.
