Follow the Cheese
Monday, November 29, 2004
Having only crossed into Texas an hour ago, I'm not sure I escaped Louisiana intact.
Psychic readings in New Orleans.
Rum punch and rowdy women on Bourbon Street.
An all-night stud poker game in Lake Charles.
And more ghost stories than I have ever heard before.
The VMGCS and I may never be the same again.
I need time to process all of it.
And according to my new psychic guide, Reese, I need to sleep.
"You are very tired," he told me. "Rest. Rest. Rest."
In the meantime, ponder today's lyric from Lucinda Williams:
"If we lived in a world without tears,
How would bruises find the face to lie upon?
How would scars find the skin to etch themselves into?
How would broken find the bones?"
