Meet Kit 1934, Chapter 3

In the 1934 Cincinnati setting of this book “Going to Chicago” meant looking for opportunities. Big cities have always offered more opportunities both for employment and education than smaller and even medium sized towns. The expression after World War One was, “How are we going to keep them down on the farm after they have seen Paris?” Big cities have not just a bigger selection of pretty girls and handsome men to choose from, but as the Campbell Soup commercial says, “Possibilities.”

As a young man, shortly after returning from military service to my hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee, I left to attend college in Houston, Texas and except for a couple of years in the mid-seventies when I tried to make Chattanooga home again I have lived and worked in my adopted big city of Houston. Thirteen years ago I went on the road full time as a contract welding and utility inspector. This last year and four months, going on five, due to Covid-19, I have like many been unemployed. Kit’s story from 1934 is a reminder that a good paying job is a gift that many of us too often take for granted till disaster or economic depression strikes.

I still recite daily as a part of my ever growing mantra the words that I began using over thirteen years ago even before I first began my full time traveling life:

“I am so glad and grateful that everything that I could ever want or need is already mine and coming to me at just the right time and in just the right way from my loving and infinite source.”

Two things I have discovered that seem to help those gifts to come my way: First that I intend daily only the highest and best for the Universe, myself, and everyone. And secondly that I remain ever willing to take a few steps in the direction of those intentions. It works for me, perhaps it will work for you as well. I have, in my travels, seen a great number of cities, large and small, and experienced many opportunities that I never would have otherwise. As Willie Nelson sings, “I can’t wait to get on the road again.”

Your friend and fellow traveler,

David White
