NO Where To Go But Where You Are

This is a song I wrote while hitchhiking across Canada - from Toronto to the west coat of  Vancouver Island, to taste and have a dip in the Pacific Ocean - then back eastwards on a northern route across the prairies and into north western Ontario, then into Quebec... Cibougamau  (sp?)
Chicutami, then down through Quebec City, down the Gaspe... then all the way up to Sidney and over
onto the Rock where I did a performance in a fish cleaning place...
          Then back west again to Toronto and North Bay... back to the bush and my hut in the wood.
           I left out a lot of places... the entire trip was somewhere around 10,000 miles. After a while, I didn't care whether I caught a ride or not. I just that whatever happened, no hurry anymore, no destination.
          It was enough to be where I was. I'd lean back against a highway sign and take notes. That's
when I wrote this song, with this attitude.

          Of course, it didn't take long before I wanted to go to a bar somewhere, but you get the idea:


      Hope you enjoy.
