Diversionary Tactics

DSC03035What do you do to totally take yourself out of yourself?

I shoulda been a long-haul trucker.  I’m a fool for the road.

Saturday morning at 6am, I left Las Vegas for Keystone, Colorado…on 4 wheels.  By Sunday night at midnight I was home again.  1,584 miles round trip, and I never listened to one bar of music, nor oneDSC03065 word of an audiobook. 

I drive with my thoughts, and the sound of my SSR’s 6-liter engine…and and all of it is cathartic.

Saturday evening, I spent at a condo in Keystone with 4 old friends from St. Louis — Kirkwood, MO to be exact.  I laughed so hard, my sides were splitting.

DSC03055In between, I witnessed the unbelievable unique beauty of Utah, Colorado, and Arizona.  We live in a world of stunning natural wonder, and in the humility of that, I took myself out of myself.

Whatever it is that brings you unadulterated joy… be sure and do it once in a while…OK?
