(Actual lyric to Tulsa Time)
“When I left Oklahoma, driving in a Pontiac, just about to lose my mind, I was going to Arizona maybe on to California where people all live so fine.”
(My rewrite of said lyric)
“When I left Oklahoma, driving in a moving truck just about to find my mind, I was going through Alabama gonna land in Destin, Florida where I’m loving living life so fine.”
Funny thing- I sing Tulsa Time in Florida at a beachside cafe.
I got to spend Thanksgiving week in Tulsa,Oklahoma, where I got to visit friends new and old.
I got to see my best friend from the ninth grade, Rhonda Davis.
I got to eat amazing food and drink lots of coffee with great company.
I got puppy love round the clock.
I got to dance, oh man, what a band, at Maggie’s Music Box, every other Tuesday night!
I got to read at The Gypsy Coffee House on open mic night.
I got to make new friends with souls that have known mine for eons.
I got to make art with my community at Stuff Dreams are Made of, celebrating four years of so much that words can’t describe it.
And I met Joy there! AND there was a woman named Joy there!
And today, I get to go to Oklahoma City and spend two days with my daughter before I return home to my beautiful life at the beach.
I love my life. I love my friends. And don’t you know, I love my daughter. And I cannot wait to see what the Universe has in store for me today and forever more.
Keep looking forward, keep looking up.
And for ALL THESE THINGS, I am grateful. INFINITY.
