Au revoir, Saint Louis!
"Your joy is your sorrow unmasked. And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears." ~ Kahlil Gibran
I love the idea of finding that one perfect person just like in all the stories and movies and songs, but I'm certainly not the perfect, rich, handsome, mysterious, etc. hero in those stories. A perfect heroine, some pining princess would certainly not be impressed by the likes of me.... so maybe I won't hold my breath that my ideal match is waiting for me.
Maybe I'll just have to meet nice people here in the real world and treat them with honesty and respect and approach each relationship as if it has the potential to last forever... and then spend time grieving if/when it ends and try again?
If you have a better suggestion, I'm open.
The journey should take approximately 40 days and we will cover more than two thousand miles in that time.
I will be updating our progress with pictures and videos of our travels along the way. Message me for more info if you are interested in learning more.

2) my dog
and what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
and rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it.
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.
An island lost at sea
Another lonely day
With no one here but me
Than any man could bear
Rescue me before I fall into despair
Don't believe what I saw
A hundred billion bottles
Washed up on the shore
Seems I'm not alone at being alone
A hundred billion castaways
Looking for a home
