For the last ten years or so I have been traveling around Texas, and a good deal of the rest of the country. But mainly Texas. As with anything familiar, it has lost much of its interest for me. It is a big state and there are a lot of cool things to see and do. And yet I seem to end up in the places which, are well, not so cool. Most small towns look, feel and taste the same-they all have Sonics and Subways and Rednecks, for lack of better term. They tend to call themselves Good Ol Boys, but that just sounds gay, doesn’t it?
I used to shoot school pictures, yes those horrid little images that capture kids at their worst. All the kids would tell me that looks gay-it didn’t matter what you ask them to do, this is there standard response to everything. I’m more of the Seinfeld camp-Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Anyway-it’s a big state and great state. I just get a bit tired of it driving all over once in a while. Still, it could be worse, I could be driving all over California. . .
