When people say they are familiar with certain roads, are they really? Do they know the age of the trees by the side of the road? Do they notice the trees? Or is it just barren land? Do they notice the way the trees stand rooted day and night if they are so familiar with the road? Do they care if the leaves start falling? Do they weep for the dying tree?
Sometimes we are so familiar with a certain road in life. Your “been there, done that” moment. We’ve been there many times. It can be the same old, boring routine at home or a constant state of glory. It would seem like the road will always be there. And when things start to change and we embrace it wholeheartedly, do you we remember our constants? Our ‘trees’?
When we’re finally out, do we care for our ‘trees’? They were our pillars of strength, our shade of protection. Do we revisit that that familiar old road? So my question is, is that road important if it is so familiar?
I would guess so, from my experiences and observations, if that road wasn’t familiar to you, you wouldn’t use it to get to your destination.
Take a moment in your life to stop and recognise those ‘trees’ in your life. Revisit your trees if you’ve reached your destination.
Heck, all this fuss over a road. To me, a journey is important. Remember, it is not where you are, it is how you get there.
PEACE OUT Y’ALL
