So I'm in Swannanoa, NC yesterday and listening to Tom Paxton do a lunchtime show. He closed his show by playing "Rambling Boy". The song made me think of my travels, and of my childhood friend David Pasquale, whom I wrote about at this time last year. I then realized that today (July 8th) would have been David's birthday. It's a good thing that I had a camera in front of my face, because it hid the sight of me getting choked up.
Happy birthday David, wherever you are, from one rambling boy to another. Safe travels, and see you all on the road.
