what I believe, and to act on my own conscious without asking that the world treats me any differently for or because of what I do.
Before I left for the Metroplex there were stirrings that maybe I should be a part of what I know is going to happen in my hometown. Beyond being my birthplace and where I could get the best chocolate chip cookies thathave ever been created, there is a je ne sais quois about being ‘from the Motor’ that is a tangible currency, even in Detroit. Beyond being tough and conditioned by some of the harshest societal elements, it is the things that can’t be quantified that make me and other expats different from natives wherever we go. Maybe it is because I don’t simply ‘expect’ things to happen and I am fully prepared to work at making something happen(my name is 'Easy' but I go the hard way out!!)… because I don’t sense a lot of that in people around here. Then again, I also am not going out of my way to get to ‘know’ the character of the Omaha other than superficially. I already know that I am going to be a good citizen and contribute in my usual fashion to life here in Omaha.
This year is going to be about exploring the ‘unexplored country’, both figuratively and literally. There are a couple of places that I want to go and there is a lot to see and do here in town as well. I am going to get up and get after the things that I want to have as a part of my life and incorporate them into my character.
