Buddy-Holly-West-Texas-History-Bob Davis Podcast 994

West Texas Buddy Holly History

Firstly there’s a lot of history in West Texas including Lubbock’s Buddy Holly Center. Nomad friend Don Anger joins me to talk about it all in Buddy-Holly-West-Texas-History-Bob Davis Podcast 994.

Still Heading West

I am certainly continuing my nomad travels, heading west.

West Texas

And there is no more West than West Texas.

Firstly as I move west the roadside markers slowly change from historic periods.

Secondly the wind.

Boom and Bust

In addition the boom and bust nature of Texas. Especially West Texas.

Therefore you come across whole towns that have been abandoned over the years.

Those Highways

Even more highways that seem to go on forever.

Music and History Collide

On the other hand Don is a music guy.

As a result Buddy-Holly-West-Texas-History-Bob Davis Podcast 994 is a nice balance between the two.

Unique Nature Of Texas

Most importantly I think we both realize the unique nature of an amazing place called Texas.

Influence Of Lubbock

In conclusion how interesting it is that someone who had so much influence hails from Lubbock Texas.

Twentieth Century Experience

To clarify this town in West Texas exemplifies the twentieth century experience in the west.

Ranching Oil Business

That is to say ranching, oil, rail roads, cowboys and grassroots business people.

Buddy Holly

Finally from road side markers and ghost towns to Buddy Holly.

A lot worth talking about.

There’s a Feeling You Get

Most importantly there’s a feeling you get out here. For example the sky. Wind. Heat.

In short something about this place calms me down.

All About Distance

Could be the distance from one destination to another. Might be the seemingly lonely places you pass through.

But you’ll never forget West Texas.

Authentic-Creativity-Nomad-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 989

Authentic Creativity and Nomad Travel

First of all authentic creativity and nomad travel go together. Secondly we’ll talk about it in depth in Authentic-Creativity-Nomad-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 989.

Authenticity

Most importantly while people value authenticity, there isn’t much of it around.

Thought Processes of Creating

Certainly I consider thought processes as a part of creating content.

Lots of Content

On the other hand there’s a lot of content on various platforms.

Not Genuine

Even more much of this content doesn’t seem genuine, creative or authentic.

No Time To Think and Dream

To clarify I don’t think content creators have enough time to think and dream.

Too Busy To Create!

In short many creators are too ‘busy’ to create.

Enter the nomad lifestyle.

Above all there’s no tether for the nomad. There’s no ‘coming home’. Because the nomad is home where ever he is.

The Zen Of Nomad Life

Moreover I’ve learned there is a zen to this life.

More Time Somehow

In the same vein there’s more time think and to think about what you’re thinking about!

In Depth

At least that is how I have experienced it. And, I talk about it in depth in Authentic-Creativity-Nomad-Travel-Bob Davis Podcast 989.

Untethered

Finally there is something about the pace of ‘untethered‘ travel.

Whim Is Real

For example the ability to decide to go South or North, East or West depending on your whim.

Time Slows Down

In other words time does slow down. You are alone with your thoughts.

No Peace In Today’s Culture

To sum up sometimes it seems as though you can’t get a moment’s peace in our day to day culture.

Not Easy

For instance we’re always listening to watching something. Texting. Communicating. Stop and go traffic.

In addition it feels like most people are just irritated just about all the time.

Nothing Is Easy

Not A Care In The World

Likewise I have had some bad days traveling but for the most part it’s like I don’t have a care in the world.

Happy?

In short the other day someone asked me if I was happy.

“Happier than I have ever been”, I said.

Future-Dreams-After-Covid-Bob Davis Podcast 979

Future Dreams After Covid

Firstly it’s time to talk about our future dreams after Covid. We’ll do that in Future-Dreams-After-Covid-Bob Davis Podcast 979.

Live From The Driveway

Secondly I am podcasting live from my mom’s driveway in Virginia for the time being. Learn why by listening here.

Dark Time

Most importantly we’re living through a dark time. I don’t think anyone disagrees with that statement.

Brittle and Emotional

In addition the way we talk to each other is often brittle and emotional.

Collaboration and Rationality

On the other hand we’ll need to communicate in a more collaborative and rational style in the future.

Social Media Sucks

Certainly social media emphasizes stark differences.

Remember When Optimism Drove Us?

On the other hand after the Spanish Flu, optimism and enthusiasm drove the country.

Positive About The Future

Finally I’ve had a lot of support from friends and business contacts recently. As a result I feel more positive about the future.

Tech Stepped Up

Moreover technology really helped us during the Corona Pandemic.

How Has Work Evolved

In conclusion we need to ask how, where and when our work has evolved positively.

Networking and Working For A Nomad

For example remote work for my tribe of nomads. In addition small towns are seeing growth as people move from large population centers. Why? Because they can.

Tired Of Negativity

To sum up I am tired of down in the mouth, nasty, brittle and angry.

No More Fighting Over The Past

In short fighting over the past does nothing for me.

All About The Future

It’s all about the future now. I think we need new ways of communicating and thinking to create a future that works.

In contrast I don’t think the old ways of thinking and communicating serve anyone anymore.
