Welcome. No longer on the road again, vehicle parked, I’m stationary. For now anyway. Good time to lay down some
tracks thanks. If you’re like me and enjoy driving, being behind the wheel of a car (any car) then you know road trips can often turn into, if not an adventure, a very enjoyable experience. In unexpected ways. Of course, being a clark, I find it difficult to accurately describe (so I won’t even try!) that which either made me laugh for the surreal split second of a moment (Thankful #4), or made me smile for the instant flashback of a movie of my own making in which I never starred, lol (Thankful #9). Once upon a time, a week ago today, shortly after sunrise, I became one with my vehicle, one with the highway and began the journey north for the holiday week. I am thankful:
#1 A safe trip. Relatively good traffic (except Connecticut) and no rain.
#2 The generosity of Clark and Phyllis and the awesome company of Una.
#3 Being able to spend time with my other brother.
#4 Where? At Vince Lombardi Service Area, NJ Turnpike.
#5 Sunshine for the last 2 1/2 days of my visit.
#6 Decorating Tree Forts with Christmas lights and wreath.
#7 Drives on country roads.
#8 Movies/film. Conduits of emotion.
#9 Where? Service area on NJ Turnpike. (again, NJ. Coincidence? lol)
#10 Today, all day. The only day.
