Our Own Style

I riffle through memories of days gone Like a junkyard of photo boxes When viewing the past again sees the dawn Of course, my favorite time it surely must be Living in my GMC van conversion Just my big Chesapeake dog, Cody and me Gave up the rent and then gave up the job Pursued a life of the struggled artist Wanted to do what makes my heart throb See new mountains and see new skies Every night a new front door See the world through different eyes Expand my wings with my artists hands New teachers mold a seeking mind Make new friends across the wander lands Those happy days with my very best friend From Alaska to the New Mexico dirt Excited as we looked around each wide bend My dog and I lived the miles for 3 years and awhile Hiked winding trails and swam the lakes Many memories we happily made with our style written: 10-5-2019

You have re-ignited the wanderlust in the cobwebs of misty memory. Thanks, Jeanne. This is great. Warmest wishes, Gershon

After my cancer I remember thinking, "what was the happiest time in your life?" And this was it... so I wanted to recreate it somehow and now travel to places to buy for my gallery...though don't have to rough it so much like I used to, you should see me lugging my duffels down small alleys to catch a tuk tuk to catch a van to get to the airport...sometimes I think I'm nuts...lol...I'm grinning all the way.

Wow! I loved hearing about this. It reminded me of my old conversion van that I went cross country with. This is excellent. A favorite too :)

That have been a lot fun...those carefree times with no agenda but to make it to the next art summer school for me...Were you sightseeing too?
