|Road Trip: Thunder Mountain and Beyond
two friends, two reasons, two weeks,
A mile past a missed exit somewhere on hwy 80 in the
middle of Nevada, a forgotten tear falls down my cheek as a
childhood memory of my father floods my mind. “Do you want me to go
back?" my friend asks. I say “please”. From the strength of my
father’s shoulders to riding shotgun in a Toyota, just as I had done
30 years earlier, I found myself holding my breath in anticipation
as we entered Thunder Mountain.
Laughter, tears, insight, tranquility music, joy, and a sense of
sisterhood were all part of the journey from Berkeley to Toronto. My
dear friend was going home and I suppose I was going home in a
round-a-bout way as well, posed as her sidekick. This opportunity
occurred at the most opportune time and enabled me to just capture
images whenever, for whatever reason and without concern of time or
constraints. Stopping and going as we pleased with the enthusiasm of
a teenager cutting class, I searched for the answer. With an open
heart I found it along the road.
