You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Conversation Piece


Thursday, Apr 12, 2007 from Wilmore, Kentucky

Meet and greet. Share some great food. Share two hours of great conversation. Say goodbye and wish each other well.

This happens time and time again on my trip. These great conversations are some of the defining moments of the trip. I’m fortunate to have a conversation with America all over the country. For those two hours or so I get to know these people on a great level, sometimes a very personal level. When the time is up, I am left to wonder, “When will I see them again?” It’s a frustration piece is what it is. I wish each of these conversations could be followed up at least weekly, picking a day each week to pick up the conversation where it left off.

Tonight’s conversation piece was with Jamie at Alfalfa’s in downtown Lexington, KY. This blog topic comes up with Jamie because we once had a great conversation at MSU years ago. Hopefully the third conversation won’t have to wait another couple years. After talking with Jamie my advice to you is this… no matter where your town is, how big or small, get to know a local journalist. Journalists have great knowledge of the surrounding area, what’s going on, what’s hot and what’s not. Not to mention they can carry a pretty good conversation.

As for now I just have to extend a rain check to everyone out there and we can pick up that conversation the next time around.
