It's 2:10 a.m. Pacific Standard Time, and I'm sitting here in the Sacramento International Airport, awaiting my 6 a.m. flight to Houston. What a bittersweet day. I'm awaiting my new life in Texas, but I had to say some difficult goodbyes to my friends here in California.
I have some of the best friends in the world, and I fully intend on keeping in touch with them when I reach Texas. I don't know many people in Texas, but I'm optimistic that things will go well in the Lone Star State.
My friend Mark and his dad, Art, drove me to the airport, and Mark handed me a letter, telling me how much he appreciates our friendship. They've been like family to me, especially since I don't have any family members here in California. I told them that I could live to be 110 and never meet people quite like them - I really meant it, too.
I was just thinking about movies and previews, tonight. Sometimes, it's painfully obvious which scenes were created to be previews. Take the new Judd Apatow film, "Pineapple Express", where the character, Red, says to Dale, "Thug Life." It was like they knew that would make a good preview. I don't know about you, but I always look forward to seeing when the parts from the preview will occur in the actual film. It's kind of a fun exercise, because sometimes the preview scenes don't happen like you would have expected them.
I know this is a country music blog, and there will be plenty of country to share with y'all once I settle in Texas, but life transcends art, music or otherwise.
