The sun sets on another day…
Another spectacular sunset. It is out of character for this time of year as we are usually lost in the cloudy darkness that being between the massive lakes creates for us all winter long. I enjoyed the sun and even though there is less daylight I can enjoy the days and the sunset carving it’s way through the western sky each day.
I’m sitting here thinking about my car. I know lots of people drive their cars constantly but I have an extra car that was a dream. It was a dream that I have wanted for so long and 14 years ago I was able to find that dream. It is not the same mainstream car that everyone else has but instead something a little different inspired to me from the smooth lines and simply a case of being different.
Over the last several years my car has taken a series of beatings from unscrupulous people who led me to believe one thing but could not do it. Now I sit here sitting with my car wondering the decisions I have to make. Whether to spend money and find a way to continue down this path or break ties and find a way to live with the loss.
In the end it is a transient piece of material. Whether it is with me or gone it has given me so much pleasure and I have had so much fun enjoying the open road and becoming one with the vehicle. Only a few people can understand how driving a car like this can actually clear your mind and open you to possibilities that are far more unlimited than we can see alone. It is a challenge as the years before me are fewer than those behind me, but why not. Perhaps it’s time to merge once again and find my way to excitement.
So as the sun sets on another day, I know it’s just a car. I know it’s something extra. It’s not a Maserati and no, it’s not even a Corvette, but I know it’s something I’ve enjoyed and will enjoy again. Find your passion and enjoy it and don’t let go for the sake of others but instead hold on and find the power to persevere, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and keep living…
