taking it slow
good for walking and talking,
We’re in Ohio!
I’ve developed a much more serene approach to road trips than in the past. When I was little, car trips seemed so boring, so long, so uncomfortable. But now that I’m growing up and have learned to be patient (i can’t believe i’m using that word to describe myself! but it’s true!), it’s almost nice to have a stretch of hours where I can just sit, think, watch nature and not a computer screen.
My mom and I talked, listened to books on tape, and I made her a playlist on my iPod. Six hours.. what’s six hours? What would I have done with that time anyway? Certainly nothing too useful.
So now I’m in lovely Ohio, scrounging Wifi from Starbucks and living a bit more slowly than usual. It’s nice.
