Communion Of Dreams


On the road again . . .

Well, I’m in Salt Lake City.

Yeah, for this thing my wife has going on.

It’s actually been an enjoyable trip, though not without mishaps. We drove over to Loveland CO on Monday (13 hours – thank gods for audio books). Spent the day with friends there on Tuesday, then headed off yesterday morning for the 8+ hour drive to SLC.

And the A/C died just outside of Cheyenne, WY.

I looked, saw the belt had broken. But it did so just as I had turned the A/C on. And we’d had problems with the A/C not being fully functional on Monday.

Made arrangements while on the road for an appointment to get the car looked at in SLC this morning, since we wanted to just get here. This morning I took the car over, while Martha went to rehearsal. After a few minutes, I got the verdict: dead compressor. Not too surprising, given what had happened.

So, I told the guys to fix it. They’ll have it done later today.

Then I walked back to the hotel – about 20 minutes. And I was in a good mood.

Why be in a good mood in reaction to car problems and a $1200 bill?

Well, why not? We’re where we need to be for the time being. The car will be ready for the drive home. I can hang out with the choir on a city tour this afternoon. And it was a pretty day for a walk – which felt good after a couple of days of driving.

All in all, things could be a hell of a lot worse.

Enjoy the day.
