Journey

I've got a few minutes now and I just wanted to share a little something. Below is map of the major moves in my life...from Quebec to different places in Illinois to BC back to Illinois to Boston, and then here to Sackville. We were talking about what 'place' means in our Human Environment class...and it got me to thinking again of all the different places that I'm "from". And well...here's the highlights:


It seems appropriate to include a traveling songs...and Tom Petty's Time to Move On is one of the best I can find:





It's time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead I have no way of knowing
But under my feet, baby, grass is growing
It's time to move on, it s time to get going

Broken skyline, movin' through the airport
Shes an honest defector
Conscientious objector
Now her own protector

Broken skyline, which way to love land
Which way to something better
Which way to forgiveness
Which way do I go

It's time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead I have no way of knowing
But under my feet, baby, grass is growing
It's time to move on, its time to get going

Sometime later, getting the words wrong
Wasting the meaning, and losing the rhyme
Nauseous adrenaline
Like breakin' up a dog fight
Like a deer in the headlights
Frozen in real time
I'm losing my mind

It's time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead I have no way of knowing
But under my feet, baby, grass is growing
It's time to move on, its time to get going
