When you’re on the road, you find you have a lot of time to think.
You have a lot of time to think when you’re on a trail, too.
You might even find that you have a lot of time to think when you’re taking the trash out.
You don’t have as much time to think when you’re avoiding rocks in the road.
Or when you’re avoiding sharp spikes.
You don’t have as much time to think when you’re trying to figure out how to climb over something.
And sometimes there is something interesting in your way that causes your mind to be led astray by imagination and you find there is time to think after all.
But beautiful things can be distracting. So you have to find your way on the road again.
You think about a lot of things as you go down this road.
The beauty and wonder of life.
And maybe how fragile it is and how quickly it can be taken away.
I get lost a lot when I’m driving. But there always seems to be a map or a sign letting me know where I’m headed.
Unfortunately, life doesn’t come with maps. So you just kinda have to keep going. Until you run into something so great, you don’t have to think about it.
