Here There Be Bumps


Where did we get the idea that the road would always be smooth?

We move right along, the scenery a blur, focused on the destination, when suddenly we are jarred back into the present.

Sometimes there is a sign. Sometimes there is no warning.

Either way the message is the same.

Slow down.

Take a breath.
Look around.
Ease over the obstacle.

And only then,
Move on.

But be aware,
Other bumps await just around the next bend.
