My last LONG road trip was the adventure I had with my youngest son—the one I mentioned before. We went all OVER the place, but what sparked the idea in the first place was that, for some reason unbeknownst to me now, I bought passes to the Country Music Festival, in Nashville.

Seeing it tonight made me want to take a walk down the somewhat winding road, and just soak in the serenity. So peaceful.
