Road trips are magical……..

“Now, on this road trip, my mind seemed to uncrinkle, to breathe, to present to itself a cure for a disease it had not, until now, known it had.”  Elizabeth Berg, The Year of Pleasures

The magic of a road trip from the planning, anticipation or even a spontaneous outing! Usually drawn to the wilds, the remote, the company of friends or loved ones, the memories mount and the vistas seem more graphic and etched into our memories. I only have to look at a photo of the Oregon Cascades to recollect decades of road trips and all the beauty that encompassed those road trips. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Now of course, if you are going to venture off, on a road trip, in the Winter be damned prepared for the worst case scenario! That last admonition did take the edge off all that mental balm, but still enjoy, but be responsible for everyone you take out into the wilds, to include yourself.

Always Searching for Something

“…adventure is simply physical and emotional discomfort recollected in tranquility”. ~ Tim Cahill

“But why think about that when all the golden lands ahead of you and all kinds of unforseen events wait lurking to surprise you and make you glad you’re alive to see?” ~ Jack Kerouac

“Better to sleep in an uncomfortable bed free, than sleep in a comfortable bed unfree.” ~Jack Kerouac Again

Count your blessings, instead of your troubles. You attract more blessings by acknowledging the ones you already have, no matter how small they may seem.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
