Barbie as the Girl with the Pearl Earring

Barbie as the Girl with the Pearl Earring

From the Inspiration Journal:

Listen to the MUSTN’TS, child,
Listen to the DON’TS
Listen to the SHOULDN’TS
The IMPOSSIBLES, the WON’TS
Listen to the NEVER HAVES
Then listen close to me–
Anything can happen, child,
ANYTHING can be.

-Shel Silverstein

San Antonio Riverwalk Stage

San Antonio Riverwalk Stage

Today I keep thinking of that song by Fountains of Wayne: Seatbacks and Traytables.  “An X on the calendar square- new city, same stuff.” I’m starting to feel that I’m moving too fast.

Yesterday I walked the Riverwalk in San Antonio for a while. Absolutely beautiful. No, I didn’t go to the Alamo. But walking back, I noticed that my hotel was @ the crossroads of Houston, Starr and Bowie. And down the street was the Crockett hotel. Yep, that’s Texas.

Then off to Austin. I stopped first @ Wholefoods in the warehouse district. MY GOODNESS. I totally love Austin. I could stay for a few months. I just love the spirit & energy (and music & food) here. This is a Sara-ish sort of place. And it was in the 80’s already. (I do like heat- a lot!) This is one of the places I’d like to re-visit.

So now I’m holed up in my hotel. Did my laundry (I have to say, that was a wonderful thing.) And downloaded some new tunes & burned some CDs. Now I’m packing it all up to head toward Santa Fe. It’ll take 2 days, so I’ll just drive ’til I get tired & then pull in.

Oh, are you keeping up w/my pix?

Hasta luego!
