Sitting in the truck with the window down in a parking lot in Shelby. Mara had to stop and use the bathroom. It’s a beautiful day. Man. How I miss normal connections like this; being a part of a community; watching the traffic and people going about their lives. We’re so cut apart from the rest of the world that I feel like a ghost. It really means a lot to me, moments like these, when I’m reminded of what life is like.
