My Home Town...
September 13, 2006

I hadn't been asleep from was a fight to get thru Chicago, trying to get to the Indiana Border. All the highways, expressways, tollways are conglomerated into one path. All the aforementioned are posted onto the same sign, on the left side of the road. There is no order as to which route is exiting to the right. People are driving up to 100 MPH and were just as bewildered, as I...

But, i did follow the directions, the lady at the first gate told me..."...go 20 miles, head for...and stay to the left!" I circled around and around and around-always veering to the left. Finally, I was in familiar territory! I was in Ohio! By following I80/94E, i somehow managed to get thru Ohio, briefly into Indiana and then Michigan-simply I-94, Detroit 259 miles more to go! How nice! I still had half a tank full of gasoline from what i had pumped way back in Minnesota. At 55-60 MPH, i was averaging 350-400 miles before refilling when the gage read 1/4 full. I could no longer attribute the fantastic mileage to the finer, most expensively priced petrol at/of/from Washington state. Having the control to maintain a minimum speed throughout the entire USA was the secret!

When I had last left Detroit (Motown), the work on I-94 had not been completed in time for the Superbowl. Yet, Detroiters were able to host the game, most graciously and without all the turmoil that continues to be experienced in Chicago. This sentiment began to quickly fade the closer I got to Detroit.

Even though i was born, raised and bred in Motown, i found myself lost on I-94East. It now encircles Detroit Metro Airport, bypasses Dearborn and way far down the road leads back into the boundaries, of Detroit. Pure Chicago genius!

I needed to be listening to the Oldies genre during my anxiety attack. All that was available was a Blues-Jazz station and a talk program. I thought i was in New Orleans. Motown is far more than Blues-Jazz, and the radio stations need to reflect the multiple genres of music. Of course, when i am sipping wine, dining and watching a live band...Blues-Jazz is perfect. But, when i am lost, travelling on unfamiliar territory with a multitude of other lost soles...only familiar music is relaxing helping to keep appropriate pace with traffic-instead of trying to watch the road while franticly changing the channels and frequencies of the radio to find music to soothe our souls!
