Theme Thursday-Traffic

Experience is by far the best teacher. You know, ever since I was a little girl I knew that if you look both ways when you cross the street, you'll see a lot more than traffic.” Mae West





Mae had it right. There's traffic where ever we look on this ever smaller globe of ours. It is how we choose to deal with it that makes the difference. I choose to imagine the images above when I am caught in midtown NY ---horns blaring and taxis moving ever so close to my bumper.

So much time is spent getting somewhere, what if we just took the time to be, to learn and look beyond the car in front of us---lead rather than follow, take the exit we pass every day just because, take a train so we can read another chapter of that book, ride a bike, motorcycle or a vespa. It is about living and experiencing. Mae had it right. I will try to do better.

My driving instructor always told me to look at the car in front of the car in front! Helps with anticipation . . not bad advice for life either, I love your cows and wouldn't mind getting stuck in gondola traffic either!

Nice and like your header ; )

After moving from the city and the west coast to indy-anna, it truly enjoy the "no traffic" most of the time.

When we need that fix, we go to chicago or eleswhere, but coming back on the 2 lane roads is always a great feeling, and weird compared to city life.

Cheers!

Lovely photos. A dvd player can be a godsend with a small child in traffic. I think it saved my sanity more than once

Great Blog, CM! I've been stuck behind animal traffic here and there and it gives another perspective on life...I think we move entirely too fast most of the time.

Take Care,
