Sometimes, leaving town is a great way to
- get perspective,
- find unity with new people,
- unify the different parts of yourself,
- replenish & refresh,
- put down some baggage,
- practice saying “hello” and “goodbye,”
- leave worries behind,
- change your mood,
- explore your feelings,
- get smarter,
- notice what’s there, waiting for you,
- get recharged,
- put a new spin on things,
- become more social,
- find your voice,
- take the next step towards change, and
- get new ideas.
Yesterday, as I was in the process of leaving my home town of Boston and traveling to the great town of Chicago, I took these photos:
Ah ha! There I am in Chicago.
Last night, I was feeling kind of shy in Chi-town when I was having dinner with some people I didn’t know,, but when the group organizer asked me to sing, I stood up, found my voice, and sang my latest song — “Everybody’s Somebody’s Asshole.”
People seemed to like my new song but even if they didn’t, I’ll be leaving town tomorrow.
No matter what town I’m in, I see gratitude everywhere. Thanks to all who helped me create this out-of-town post and — of course! — to YOU.
