safe passage.

Standard

sign found on a trip to the farm. 

might be good advice for all drivers on the road

not just the young pedal car drivers on the track.

 

“I simply go about my passage swiftly and silentlwith a certain deliberate, dark efficiency.” 

-george carlin

accidents.

Standard

along the way on my weekday drive

there is often a traffic mishap or accident

and if I begin to worry about being late

or get annoyed by the hold up

  i think about how the person/people involved must feel

how their life instantly changed in that moment

they were just having an ordinary day

and then

this happened

maybe they were

headed to work

to visit someone

leaving for a vacation

going to a celebration

helping someone

so many possibilities

 i’ve got no room to complain 

 nothing to worry about

puts it all right back into perspective

so i listen to my music and sit with my gratitude.

 

“since human wisdom cannot secure us from accidents,

it is the greatest effort of reason to bear them well. “

-john paul jones
