I saw this photo today and it immediately brought to mind the song “On The Road Again”.
After having been at home for a few weeks and having heard today that if we all just stayed home for 2 weeks that we would all but stop the spread of Corvid-19.
It just made me want to get out and about.
It’s the contrarian in me.
But for now… it’s a virtual reality world.
So, I’m going to imagine this road trip.
Heading through the outskirts of the Rocky Mountains eager to see the tall peaks covered in year-round snow.
I can feel the heartbeat of the earth as I travel in the valleys between the mountains and connect with the sky in the wide-open places.
The scene as I head into the “between spaces” is awe-inspiring and there is no place like it on earth.
I hold my breath in wonder and breathe out a sigh as I watch the shadows lengthen along the ridges.
Colours like a marbled countertop and the slate gray of tile proclaim their origin as the landscape flashes by.
Slowing the car to take in the majesty of my surroundings I exhale with a huge sigh of reverence for these soaring pinnacles.
These are remembered times.
Have fun with them.
On the road again
Goin’ places that I’ve never been
Seein’ things that I may never see again
And I can’t wait to get on the road again
