I’ve been traveling a lot lately. For work mostly. I’ve been to Kuwait, Dubai, Las Vegas, Oklahoma City, Austin Texas, Tulsa and most recently Phoenix. The last two trips are part of this football campaign I’m working on, which I’ll post here when it’s more baked.
One of the great things about these trips is it gives me the chance to really absorb a community through it’s people. I’ve met a man who joined the Army at 30 and led a squad in Afghanistan. I’ve met a man that was months away from wealth and fame before he was placed in a body bag only to return from the grave. (Seriously) And I’ve met a band of brothers from Tulsa that sticks together through the tragedy, triumph, the NFL and always comes back to East Tulsa.
So I feel like I’ve seen a lot. And sometimes you have to climb above it all to see how far you’ve come.
