I should be writing. It’s the name of a well-known podcast with Mo Rafferty. It’s also the phrase tumbling around my head 99% of the time. The only time it isn’t is when I’m actually writing. So, am I writing today?
As anybody who knows me knows, I am a lover of road trips. Long road trips, short road trips, spontaneous trips, rides with my kids, or trips by myself. I’m a wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving who always returns. Not always in the same automobile I left it, but I come back.
It’s my favorite type of meditation. When the next instruction on the GPS is ‘take I-70E for 580 miles’ ( which is actually part of the trip from Fort Collins to Charlotte), I know I can relax, let my mind wander through every plot hole, vague story idea, personal problem, and future Oscar speech rattling around my brain.
