Across The Line

Today's song is, I Walk The Line by the late Johnny Cash.

Sherry and I enjoyed our Wednesday night drive over to Yuma, Arizona as we did back in March of this year. While we drove, we listened to our music CD's [1; 2; 3; 4].

Upon arrival at the Blue Sky RV Park, we were greeted by the friends we made during our first trip, the park hosts, Ron and his wife Shirley. They were happy to see us and invited us to the park's Thanksgiving dinner which we attended and met many of the other hundred or so folks arriving for their winter stay. We spoke with retired people from Calgary, Spokane, Seattle, and, Vancouver, just to name a few.

During the days we enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub. The air temperature was about 80 degrees during the day and down to about 48 degrees during the night. The clear sky offered Sherry and I great view of the stars.

On Friday we went to the nearby Paradise Casino for about an hour. It is uniquely located on the state line between California and Arizona. The second picture below shows the corridor between the doorways for both states.

After leaving the casino, we attended the afternoon showing of the new movie, Walk The Line at the new local theater (lobby shown below). It is an emotionally gripping movie of the road to success traveled by the late Johnny Cash. It seems that every talented person has their own torment, their own internal challenges that they wrestle with throughout their lives. Johnny Cash chased his dream until the day he died. His lyrics and music was his diary for every day of that journey.

The movie is also a story of the romantic love of his life, June Carter, who tried to distance herself personally from Johnny Cash's life, but in the end agreed to become his wife. Some people are just meant to be together no matter what life throws at them. This movie pulls it all together just as Johnny and June did back in 1968.

All of us can walk a line, all of us can be in a ring of fire. The Man In Black proved it.
