On the Road (Day One)…

Well, I’m on the road to Canada!!  Went to work for a few hours this morning.  One of my co-workers took this picture just as I was leaving for the trip.

Had a pretty good voice lesson at the University of Iowa this afternoon.  Final hearing of the four spirituals I’ve prepped for the symposium. At least that part of my presentation is in very good shape.

Immediately afterward, started heading East.  With only two hours of sleep last night (really this morning), it was no surprise that I only got as far as Princeton, Illinois, before I was too tired to safely continue onward.  Princeton, by the way, is proud to say it’s the hometown of President Ronald Reagan.  I won’t hold that against them as long as they have a clean place for me to sleep.

The route for Day 1:



Off to a (hopefully) good night sleep!!

I realized that I neglected a couple of critical parts of my journey. First, I need to acknowledge the musicians and their songs that helped me focus on my driving throughout my journey. So, I’m going back and posting links to a song that I recall most strongly from each day’s playlist.

This day’s song is Chicago’s “25 or 6 to 4.” I’m still so jealous of my brother who went to hear both Chicago and EWF in concert on the same stage!! This song started the trip playlist and always makes for a short obsession session.

Most importantly, of course, I thank the Lord for granting me the stamina to make the trip, the damn good reflexes to steer the RB as she needed to be guided, and the ability to enjoy His handiwork as it whizzed by my windshield.
