Eyes on the Road.

_“Yes there are two paths you can go by

but in the long run

There’s still time to change the road you’re on”_

– “Stairway to Heaven”

I think a lot of people can identify with some of the lyrics in this beautiful song. While it’s not just it’s beauty it is the meaning.

We all see certain paths that we wonder about. We wonder if we should go down that path to which we’re expected or the one of chance and change. We look back and see when we made our own path, that intersects with one of the other paths, like a city block. We make our choices, then we travel down and look back in the rear-view mirror and can see what we left behind.

Sometimes life is painful. The feelings of loss, abandonment, and sadness. Other times, it’s wonderful! It’s beautiful! Even the mundane can bring wonder. There is no fault in looking back, seeing the vision in the rear-view mirror. We can look and wonder about what could have been or what was. We just need to make sure to not hit the car in front of us.
