Headed out today to points north … yep, no one I know goes to “da U.P.” (Michigan’s Upper Peninsula) in ….December, ‘cept maybe snowmobilers and hockey players.
But I am.
This is a trip I’ve planned since taking the new job a month ago; I’m off to work with a direct report (employee), and to familiarize myself with our business there.
I’m headed to places with names like Ishpeming, Marquette, Escanaba and Houghton. I’ll see the shores of Lake Superior and meander my way along the Keweenaw Bay. I’m off to explore a land I’ve never seen and meet people I’ve never met.
As much as I love the steadiness of my home and office routine, well today I just can’t wait to on the road again. I like the adventure, seeing new places, meeting new faces, and traveling along life’s pathways.
P.S. Hubbs and I saw Willie at the Arena Theater in Houston, Texas. What a performer! His songs take me back to my teens… to Saturday nights spent cruising country roads with outlaw music blaring as loud as it could go. He put on a great concert, and I’d see him again if given the opportunity.
Wherever the road takes you, I hope you have a great week, my friends!
