Day 65-67: Atlanta, GA

Drove from North Carolina to Atlanta, GA... all the while listening to Bill McKibben's Wandering Home on audio CD... thanks to Chris back in Austin. Wonderful book to listen to.

Holly took off Sunday morning for a party back in San Diego. Friends flew her back for a night. Wow.

Got into Atlanta to stay with Troy and Kelly Bronsink (and daughter Eve). Met some wonderful people at a Christmas party and then spent Sunday prepping and playing for an event that was a benefit concert for the Sullivan Center, a non-profit in Atlanta that helps to support homelessness prevention.

Some pics from the day...



Wrapped up the day as it was getting chilly. Went home and crashed.

Holly gets back tonight. I'm just chillin', doin' work at Troy's coffee shop, meeting people as they come in, hearing their stories, and writing this BLOG entry.

While I'd love to take the credit for giving you Wandering Home, it was actually Steven, the temporary Abbey dweller who gave it to you guys. All the same, glad you like it. And he lives elsewhere now, wandering...

On your drive from Raleigh to Atlanta, you drove right by my wife's hometown where we'd been living on her family farm in Gibsonville, NC. Had we never moved to Austin, I would have come to the interstate to give you a friendly wave. But, had we never moved, I would not have met you, so this friendly wave must remain locked in a past that had no future.

I've been enjoying reading your pilgrim-thoughts. Keep 'em coming...
