sending you blithe and bliss: drive safe

Today I send to you some thoughts from the road; being a Californian one spends a lot of her time driving... sometimes it can become a monotonous routine going from freeway to freeway and stop light to stop light. So I have challenged myself to see this inevitable time as an opportunity to look at life in a different way, to experience it with new eyes. I search for anything new in my eye range- like a flock of birds, native plants forcing their way through the cement barriers... sometimes I imagine there is a built in camera in my eyes and I envision different photos and angles I could take to make the cement freeways and roads look beautiful and more like ornate roads that will eventually lead us all to where we are meant to go...

Today on your journey, I hope you will see and envision your own bit of blithe and bliss.

Driving down the road a mind is open to ponder

What are you living for?

What do you stand for?

What is your life about?

Where are you headed?

Who are you?


Sometimes the answers can be found

 by altering your perspective-

looking in different ways

Turning things around


Questions are always different

And the answers always change

The answer may make sense one day

But another day questions have changed

But still I am driving and sometimes wonder why

If I am the driver


Where am I going?

See there is another question

That the drive inquires

Maybe there isn’t just one answer

Maybe we are just meant to drive

While driving down the road

Keep your eyes open


Most importantly

Your mind open to the road

drive safe
