This is really where the Journal starts. The first verse here is taken from his very first entry. Talking about how awkward he felt starting a Journal. It was given to him by his mom on his 16th birthday. The next day his family went on a Sunday drive. He kept those drives going for much of the rest of his life and most of my childhood as well. I definitely related to him here in that second verse from July6, 86.
i don't know how this is supposed to work
or why i'm doing this
or who this is even for
how do i sign off?
i guess i just stop?
i guess i like the view
a Sunday drive
the trees and farms
and little towns we go through
sometimes i feel like my life is starting over
i'm just being born again and again
