I am a para-professional hobo. If my home is where I grew up, it's Alaska. If my home is the last place I felt at home, it's New York. If my home is where I lay my head at night, it's Texas.
One time I knew a girl who just loved and adored the band Supertramp. One day I asked her why in particular Supertramp was her very favorite band in the entire universe. and she said that they sang her very favorite song in the entire universe. 'Wow' I thought, Supertramp! huh. Of course, I asked her which song was the absolute best and she said, 'Take the long way home' cause it's true, when you think about your life you're taking the long way home. That's what life is.
and so be it. she was right.
"When lonely days turn to lonely nights you take a trip to the city lights And take the long way home Take the long way home-"
