Big Country. Small World.

Small World
What a whirlwind week I’ve had and I’m only halfway done. I traveled up to the Texas Panhandle to pay visits to clients and potential clients. Yesterday, I met a sweet woman (Anne) who toured me through the Charles Goodnight Historical Center in Goodnight, Texas, which opens in a few weeks. While visiting the former home of Mr. Goodnight, I noticed a beautiful chandelier in the dining room of the historic home. I commented about its beauty and Anne told me it was as close as they could find to matching what they knew of the original. They discovered it in McKinney, Texas. I laughed as I’d recently left my job in McKinney to take a new position in Austin. Small world, I told her.

On our way back to my car, I mentioned I’d lived in this part of Texas in the 70’s in a tiny town in the northeast corner of the Panhandle – Follett, Texas. She said she knew someone from there, and told me her full name. Her first name was Susie. I laughed and told her I went to school with Susie and was actually meeting one of her classmates on Wednesday evening for the first time in more than 30 years. My world was getting smaller.

This afternoon, I had the great pleasure of going on a horseback ride, my first, with Cowgirls and Cowboys in the West. We rode through Palo Duro Canyon, one of the most beautiful areas of Texas, located near Amarillo.
