There’s something about a road leading off into the distance that makes one want to follow, even when you don’t know, and can’t see, where it leads.

There’s something about a nightfall, that makes the darkness seem inviting.

There’s something about the sound of truck tires in the distance, that calls to the soul of a traveler.

We want to know, we want to experience it all. We want the adventure.  We want to live our dreams.img_0193

There’s something about the road not taken that always makes us wonder why we didn’t.  The road not taken, you see, is always an easier sell than hard reality, because it only haunts one’s memory, and memory has a stretchable quality to it. We can mold it to match our dreams. And sometimes, the biggest heartbreak we as humans face, is turning away from that dream.
