Last Sunday, I left for a 7 day road trip.
Facebook status: Stacy Schreier Bender road trip = considering being absent from Facebook for 7 days….I think I’m up for the challenge.
I was. No status updates. I started thinking about myself in the first person again. I didn’t think that the world needed to know that I stopped to pee in Somewhere, WI. By the way, I would love to know if there really is a Somewhere, WI. Please hold while I google that.
Apparently not. Sad news. Perhaps I can start my own town named that some day. It would have to be conveniently located within 1 hour of an airport, though.
When I returned to “status land” this afternoon, I found that I didn’t really want to share much about the past 7 days. It was mine. Not the property of my 487 friends…most of whom are former students who don’t really know me anyway. The trip was mine – and it was God’s. What I choose to share about the road trip will be to help me remember…and to help me share who I am afterwards.
I am changed…and I want to stay that way.
