the Requisite New Year/Old Year Post

2010, You were a blur.
Like a fast and furious road trip from January 2010 to Dec. 2010
When I got to December I thought, "Wasn't I just here! That can't have been a year ago!"
Like a road trip,
I had many wonderful stops,
saw beautiful scenery,
had some flat tires
met some new people, reconnected with some old
read a lot of books
ran out of gas a couple of times

argued about how to pack the car
sped on the super highway when I should have taken the backroads
thought a lot and came to no conclusions

Next year, what kind of a trip will you be?
How many of the road hazards will I be able to avoid?
How can I get there from here?
Want to revisit some of my favorite places and discover new.
Pay my tickets without whining and
No cruise control.

I loved the analogy. Both hands on the wheel, eyes on the road. Full speed ahead. Happy New Year.

I like the idea of taking off-ramps that aren't on the map.. and exploring the "road not taken"
ahhh the possibilites
Happy New Year!
