“Sonador, When you ran the earth shook and the sky opened and mere motrals parted…”
Tomorrow morning I move from Boston to Tucson. I drive the whole way. Boston to Cleveland to Chicago to Kansas City to Santa Fe to Tucson. Roughly.
Just me. Well, me and my Lord of the Rings Audio book. 52 hours of fun my friends, 52 hours of fun. I plan to take some pictures along the way. I’ll put some up on the photos section of Ryanhoodmusic.com when I’m done. I’m speaking in short sentences. It’s ok. Sometimes short is sweet.
“Renewed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king.”
-Lord of the Rings
And I remember that somehow the story is bigger than my little life and my big drive and the friends I leave behind in Boston and the family I gain in Tucson. And I remember that life isn’t really a story about ME at all. Though I do play a part in it. How big, or how earthshaking a part I play in it, I’ll leave it up to the Earthmaker to decide.
Life is a big idea. It’s too big for me. But I’m aiming to live it, best I can.
Late night short sentence musings about big ideas and strong horses and long roads and endless stories and moving the whole earth with love the size a single kind word or a smile to a stranger.
“Beneath the noise below the din, I hear your voice it’s whispering, in science and in medicine, ‘I was a stranger, you took me in'”
Next time I’ll make more sense. And next time I’ll once more be a son of the desert. But this time I like my ramblings. Good night moon.
