Road Trips SOLSC 16

This was originally posted on http://www.yetthereismethod.net/

Road trips are:

  • Packing and double-checking, knowing you’re going to forget something anyway
  • Airing up and topping off
  • Deciding on snacks, coffee, and a playlist to get started
  • Setting off with the early-morning sun in your eyes
  • Turning it up and singing along
  • Gas stations and fast-food restaurants
  • Eating what you probably wouldn’t eat at home
  • Driving on, long after the conversation wanes
  • Stiff backs and a sigh of relief when you’re there
  • Hugs, handshakes, and hellos
  • Just a quick trip down the hall
  • Love, laughter, and catching up
  • Quietly mourning those who were here last trip, but aren’t here now
  • Sleeping in a not-quite-like-at-home-strange bed
  • Missing those who couldn’t make the trip
  • Packing and double-checking, knowing you’re going to forget something anyway…then working your way back through the rest of the list again
  • Home, sweet home
