day 4, nevada

July 7, 2010

their wheels reached the road. the wind reached their hair. and for the first time, in a long time, their gumption could not be reached by any limits.

today is the day they decided to stop dragging their shadows in a circle.

day 3, california to nevada

they threw their bags and their boots inside the car they would call home. and they named her America. and all the doubts that lingered, they just set them free. and let the good things happen.

day 2, san francisco

July 7, 2010

They had come to San Francisco knowing it could never last forever. With stomachs nauseous and souls screaming a thousand babbling words they packed up all the existence and esprit their exhausted hearts could carry.

Their battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; they had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.

day 1, san francisco

July 7, 2010

The thing is, they didn’t have it bad. In fact their lives were quite nice and filled with nice stuff and nice people and nice places but they had just read a couple of books by Kerouac and listened to a few too may Tammy Wynette records and decided that they needed to invigorate their lives with a little more madness. Inspired. They often sat on a bench with ripe unrequited love and burning predilection for a life less ordinary. They sipped their dark and gritty coffee. This time they decided to take it to the open road to search for their own country song. Armed with angsty love songs sung by angsty women, the two declared the road thy bitch. Smiles were few and far between. The reason was never quite defined, however, they assumed that their slighted sisters before them would want it that way…silent strength or maybe just pictography defined. So they went…two broken down heroes of the western night.
