An Oooooooooklahoma Intermission
Oklahoma City, OK
Rather unexpectedly, I went to Oklahoma City for a few days. It was a super fun trip, spent traveling with loved ones and staying with their family. Traveling with a group is a different vibe than traveling alone, though often not in a bad way. This is an odd analogy, but it feels similar to choosing all the books you read vs. having books assigned to you in a class. When a book’s on a syllabus, sometimes it’s a book I would have never chosen, or even found, on my own. If it ends up being a great book, I love that someone else led me to it. That there was another perspective influencing my intense, but sometimes scattered, reading.
Traveling with a group also tends to pass in more of a whirlwind. I have less time to process or build an inner monologue at each location, so when I return it can feel like the trip is just a roll of photos on my phone, my memory of everything as light as an Instagram carousel post I slideshow through.
In that spirit, here’s an entirely photo-driven edition of Nomadic. A map at the bottom notes the location of these photos, in addition to other places visited.
