Currently in L.A. on vacation. I’m in an uber and I look over to my right… I see two black men driving in a BMW 3 series with Minnesoda license plates. My eyes venture through the vehicle and in the black I see a pile of clothes. This scheme was all too familiar. They were moving to Los Angeles… Coincidentally, or intentionally, they’re landing here on Independence Day. What a perfect way to celebrate ones freedom by embarking on a new journey within a new city – chasing ones destiny.
I couldn’t help but get emotional at the site. One, I saw myself in them. Two years ago to the date, that was me. I packed my 3 series with my clothes and drove to i10 in Houston and continues West for 1200 miles until I got here. I fell in love with LA. It’s my second home, outside of Houston.
Now my thoughts are clouded with what if’s and why’s, but I’ll just leave this moment where it is. I won’t question, I’ll just exist, for now. This journey has definitely been a hard one.
Meanwhile, I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday with their loved ones.
Until next time, Fancy Friends.
