WHAT IS THE TRAVEL WRITING LIFE REALLY LIKE? IS IT AS GREAT AS PEOPLE THINK? I HOPE TO COME TO SOME CONCLUSIONS AS I SHARE MY TRIPS AND TRAVAILS.

Double Pneumonia, Closer to the End

by Kent St. John on September 1, 2012

Perhaps it takes double pneumonia to really make you understand but I was totally into watching the RNC convention this past week, a bit hokey but hey I thought it would be. This coming week I have the DNC convention to occupy my idle mind.

It’s kind of like watching a low version of Super Bowl pre game shows, but I am now into it, completely! I saw way to many cheese head hats but hey double pneumonia is tough so any distraction helps getting through. It is the first time I’ve had any kind of pneumonia at all and I pray my last!

What is hard is reading any travel news at all, so badly miss the road, from a dirt path up to a super highway. Real pain is not being able to do what you love. Still I am encouraged when one of the Docs at Sloan display the amazement at how much quicker I am at healing then most cases they see. I get reports like that and my heart pumps with life.

For example I read Lonely Planets list of friendliest peoples and countries to now travel in. I was happy to see Samoa there as well as Ireland. Ireland has been a long time favorite and Samoa was my first visit, huge sized people gentle as lambs with huge smiles to match their size.

So DNC this week and swear the road soon, mental health requires it and soon. It need not be overly friendly or even far, not even an hour drive would hurt. I’m often asked how I am able to go through my diseases and problems.

Easy, I’m not ready to give up and have so much to do and yes even hokey things such as political conventions help. This week it is time to fill up the out box and get an in box building. Kent E St John without any Pac to call my own
