A Child of These Roads I

Monday, April 17, 2006 ~ Santa Fe, New Mexico

I wake just after dawn with Joshua Kadison singing his Child of These Roads in my head.

The asphalt was shining
The sky was dazzling blue...
Somethin' in me was changing
Fast as the speed of my wheels...

I was a child of these roads
A child of these roads
A black wide river shinin'
I rode her everywhere she wanted to go
Just a child of these roads...

The refrain repeats in my head as I finish packing the car. It still reverberates as I fit the key in the ignition and pull away from my casita...away from Santa Fe.

It's the perfect day to begin this new a child of these roads.
