I’d drive all across the U.S. – with no specific destination in mind.
Maybe I’d drive to New York City to shop, see the Empire State Building and take a taxi across the Brooklyn Bridge. Then I’d head over to Montauk to walk along the beach and see a lighthouse or two. Perhaps I’d meet a new friend there. I could really use a friend. We could talk about the weather and watch the waves crash along the shore.
Or maybe I’d go the other way and go visit the hills of San Francisco and take a ferry to visit the empty cells of Alcatraz. I think it’d be fun to run across the Golden Gate Bridge, too. Next I’d stop in San Diego to visit the animals at the San Diego zoo. Or maybe I’d just lie by the beach and feel the warmth on my face again. That would be nice.
Sometimes I just feel so trapped here in Nebraska. January is always cold steel and dreary gray. And February, which is quickly approaching, really isn’t much of a change.
I am just praying for a swift winter and that spring is just right around the corner. I think we could all use a little more sunshine in our lives right about now.
