I left my hometown on a whim, with a little over $300 cash and a car with a failing transmission.
I played hacky-sack outside "the" Quick Stop with total strangers.
I've danced at festival until the sun came up. Then I danced some more.
I've written over a hundred poems, and participated in open mics.
I've been left breathless with gratitude at the beauty of the universe.
