Any Road

If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.

Lewis Carroll


At least, I know where I’m going today…

I’m on the road today and tomorrow, another racing road trip to drop off work at two of the galleries that represent my work.  I always have ambivalent feelings about these trips.  Part of me enjoys the road, taking in the scenery and simply seeing little things that I can’t see from the end of my own driveway.  But part of me really doesn’t like it, doesn’t enjoy all the ways it takes me away from my treasured routine that I find myself longing for from the time I turn out of my driveway.

But I do it and enjoy seeing my friends at the galleries, catching up on small talk and the minutiae of our lives.  It’s this personal connection that makes the journey worth the unease that goes along with it.

So, today, I’m flying down the road, eating greasy food and avoiding speeding tickets.  And all the time wishing I was closing in on home.
