Open Road


My world is much different than it used to be.  I find myself at times feeling in between the old and new and no man’s land where nothing seems to move, all at the same time.  I am reminded of a scene in Castaway (if you haven’t seen the movie the next part spoils it, so stop reading see the movie and then read further).  It is when he is at an intersection and he has to decide which direction to go.  The open road stood before him but seemingly without direction or goal, for few who have achieved what he had are given a blank slate in which to rebuild their lives.  Did he forget where he grew up or came from “NO!” he will build on it and probably even explore new things. One never forgets their past, for it is always with them, but one never stops learning too.  When faced with an assumed wall or an open road choices have to be made, before they are made for you.
