Destination – Kansas
I’m in Kansas now. Delivered from Chicago via the Amtrak Southwest Chief and still basking in the new atmosphere. I arrived wearing my travel dress and a few days later was sojourning at the Circle S Ranch outside of Lawrence wearing cowgirl getup. I have had the pleasure of trying wines from Kansas wineries Jefferson Hill, and Wyldewood.
I’ll return to Circle S later, explore more wines, and sojourn at a few other unique destinations. Now I’m back in Lawrence, exploring the downtown most days. Also, I am working with Jay Wachs, proprietor of Lawrence Hits.com to set up a book signing for my poetry book and a reception.
Kansans are friendly, genuine and upbeat. The ambience in this part of the world is much different than ’tis in Chicago. “But of course,” you say, and I anticipated it when I arrived. Now I’m experiencing the differences intimately. I will elaborate sharing one story at a time.
O yes, and along with the Travelogue, I am working on stories and narratives to be published via Kindle. Among the first: For the Love of Chocolate.
