Home again, where I belong


I just returned from Las Vegas for a weekend trip with an friend of mine, which was very fun to realize we have been friends for 25 years! While I had  GREAT fun, loved being with my friend and was grateful for the trip …Vegas is not for me baby. Used to be, never again will be.  It IS a great place to observe much about human behavior and interactions though. I would have been fascinated had I enough time to sit on a chair with a notebook and record snippets of conversations and relationships witnessed.  Try though I might, much of it is lost. However the saying “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”?   Not true. I would venture to say that it comes home with you, it did for me. The memories I witnessed will come back (good, bad and ugly sad) and I will try and catch them on paper before they vanish again.    

Nothing like a trip to sin city to make me perhaps feel right at home here, with my beautiful family, next to the cornfields.  I wasn’t sure how I felt about Midwest living. There is one thing I can say though, the people here are genuine-not the main theme of Vegas. I am blessed and thankful for this life, this day in this place.
