KennWhen I was a child I grew up in a town of about 5,000 people. My mtheor, grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents all lived there for all of their lives. Going to the closest big town(Norman, OK), about 15 minutes away was, a huge deal. They called it going to the city. I found that each time I went with them as a young kid I saw something new. So what did I do when I graduated high school? I quickly moved to OKC(an hour away from home), not knowing really anyone or anything about living in a larger city. They thought I was crazy but I wanted to expand my mind and my understanding of the world.I haven't lived in a lot of different places but as I've gotten older (I'm only 26) and more comfortable I've began to travel more. Phoenix, Seattle, Manhattan, Vancouver, Dallas, Minneapolis .with each new place I learn something new and meet someone new and inevitably I become part of it and it becomes part of me or better yet I realize some sort of potential maybe that place and I were part of each other all along. I always miss my friends and family back home but I've learned that they are never really not with me. It seems like nothing can bridge the appearance of distance. It might be the minds greatest illusion. Not Skype, or e-mail, or great phone conversations. Nothing, that is, except for your love for those people and places and their love for you.
