Keep your eyes on the road directly in front of you…

“Are we there yet? How much longer do we have to go. I’ve gotta pee.”

Only thing is you’re someplace between Los Angeles and Phoenix in the middle of the Mojave Desert and you’re running low of gas. A sign at the rest area says Watch out for Rattlesnakes. Now even the night was hotter than Hades that even the drinking water scolded your tongue and you asphyxiated in the heat.

A young couple approached us looking to sell their wedding ring for some cash. After all diamonds are a bitch of a reminder about our covenant torn asunder.

Because love is not always a glamorous life…it blows harder than a tease most of the time like those dust storms across our arid landscape.

That’s how fucked things can get. A fast yet furiously awesome road trip down that Highway to Paradise by our dashboard light. That spur of the moment rendezvous out of state or out of our flippant minds.

You don’t have a Plan A, B, or C…but you get a damn D in reality drama class while urinating on a stick. ‘Cause god knows you ain’t got birth control the morning after.

As the slogan painted over the smoothie bar at the Whole Foods Market says, “Life is a Journey.”

I’d rephrase that to shout out “You’re only one shithole away from your next gloryhole. Just don’t blink or you may miss out on your hole in one.”

So just roll the dice and place your bet with the one you’re with. And enjoy the excitement and experience the ecstasy of both the expected and unexpected on the road less traveled.

As future global citizens we can seek first to understand one another through word pictures and engage our collective creative intellects to change our community; one blog at a time.
