i left louisville and aimed north for bloomington indiana where i would spend time with two of my favorite facebook friends. elisabeth is my former stepdaughter but now i think of her as friend. she suggested i stay at her house but i worried that i might be imposing. as i lay my head down on the pillow, i knew i was in the right place. hotel rooms and cars are not quite as comfortable as a single place you call home. i talked about traveling with facebook friend andrew pearce the next morning.
i was given a great gift through facebook today. friends stepped in to move things out of my car and into an apartment. it’s small, it’s over an abandoned warehouse, it makes me think a little bit about the movie flashdance, but i’m so happy and from here i will sally forth to meet new friends. it’s good to have a place that i can say “home”. . . . although it’s been great. thank you, marriott. thank you, minicoop!
