THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA by Chris Damitio
I like my country. I like the land and I like the people. I know it is quite in vogue right now to bash America, point out all her flaws and weaknesses, but there are a lot of really great advantages to living here. I mean basically, you can decide what and who you would like to be. If what you’re doing isn’t making you happy, you can quit. Figure out what makes you happy and then find a way to make your living doing it. I ‘ve noticed that all the people I know with happy, satisfying lives have done just that. Maybe not always consciously, but look around. I bet most of the happy people you know are doing whatever it is that makes them happy. Doesn’t that make sense? Somebody wants to pay you for whatever you like doing. You just need to do it. Which reminds me of my one piece of hatemail. Don’t forget , all hatemail will be read. Heres the letter:
ramblin man huh? You are not worthy to bear the name of
the allmans greatest song ever. I hate you. why would you
call yourself that. Of all the names in the world. Why……..?
#1 allmans fan.
Thank you for the hatemail. It’s my first and I’m very excited about it! Now, Why a Ramblin Man? It’s a question I’ve been asked many times. It has nothing to do with the Allmans, more with my penchant for random discourse and homelessness. I never called anyplace home before moving to Fairhaven.
