These Dreams Go On... #1

Last night we drove away again. We didn't know where we were headed; we didn't care. The kids were grown, living happy lives of their own. Our work as parents was far from done, but it was time to spend some time alone. No packing, no toothbrushes, no stopping the mail. On a mutual dare we climbed into the car, opened the moon roof, and turned up the music. Come the dawn we were miles from anyone and anywhere we ever knew. I felt lighter inside, like the morning after our first date. Our only commitment to each other, the only decisions to make being left, right, or straight. No fears, no doubts, no nightmares, just the possibilities of the open road. Not knowing the end of the journey, forgetting the beginning, and thrilling at the in between.

Maybe tonight we'll go see the world's largest ball of twine.
