where you going?

– You haven’t updated “wull hay” in a while.

– Yeah, I know.  I just don’t know what I would say.

– That’s understandable.

– Just so much going on in my head right now.

What would I tell you?

How I made a checklist for my last weeks in Jackson and fulfilled it 75%… reminding me of falling just a bit short…

How sad it was to say goodbye to KHOL… and the realization that it saved me from myself… http://soundcloud.com/wullhay/the-last-morning-scramble…

How I had a full-on meltdown after my last soccer game…

How my new apartment is part of a little dream I’ve had for a while… I cannot wait to live LIVE there…

But, no, all things that come back to craziness too quickly.

So, I’ll tell you about wise words from Bardman.

On one of my last days hanging out with Bard, his dad was driving back most of their stuff to later meet the rest of the fam in Boulder.  He wanted to meet up with us in town to say goodbye.

I was caught off guard by him wanting to say goodbye to me… I guess I’ve been so numb about it all that I assumed he was just saying goodbye to Bard.  When we said our goodbyes and hugged and he wished me luck on my new travels, I got back into the car where Bard was already sitting.

As I fought back tears and reversed the car to get out of the parking space, Bard said…

– Ray Ray, where you going?

I composed myself, thinking of where we were going next and how to answer Bard.  I put the car in drive and started moving forward, when Bard, noticing the car, asked…

– You going forward?

– [crying now, smiling.]  Yeah, Bardman… I am going forward.
