Keep driving

The sun sets on another day…

I have another post done, then switched gears and went another direction. It will come out in a few days now as I look at the drive. I wrote about similar several times, but the most prevalent is here.

Sometimes when we have no center, we need to find it again. From time to time everyone slips. It may be from something small, or something large. It can be subtle to repair it or a chaos driven debacle, but there is always a solution.

Metaphorically and realistically when I have lost my center I have enjoyed driving to recenter. Driving cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats or anything that ha a wheel. There is something about merging directions with a machine that clears the mind, and no matter where you are going, when you get there you suddenly know where you are.

A funny thought.

When I went through a rough time in my life I spent a lot of weekends driving. I would put $50 in my pocket and take off on the motorcycle, and when I got gasoline, I would turn around and find my way home. If I drove slowly it would be a long ride, quickly the gas would burn faster and the drive not so long, but the destination and distance were not a factor. Instead, the drive was a journey for me to come to terms with the moment, and if at all possible, enjoy a sunset somewhere new.

So as the sun sets on another day, drive, keep driving, and smile each and every moment. Drive to be happy, drive to be excited, to calm down, but drive as you need to drive, and as you do, make the world a better place, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, drive, and arrive!
