    Look like a lot of heeding needed by those in the truck. Terrific poem.

    that is a scary sight to come across, and certainly gives us pause to think about life…

    This reminded me of this quote I posted to Facebook earlier this week.
    “Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: “I’m with you kid. Let’s go.”

    Often when my Hubby goes on a Hazmat call… I think that if someone had just slowed down and heeded life respectfully… Some situations are not pretty at all.

      It’s too true. People are shortsighted and reckless.

    Midway point, eh? looking forward and back in equal measure. Stops you short, and should give you time to think; But life at the moment doesn’t allow too much time to over-think it, theres things to do Right Now…

    As a new driver (my family was on a long trip, and I was beginning to log my first 1,000 miles), ours was the first car to arrive following a fatal crash along the Columbia River between Washington and Oregon. That image of a semi-truck on its side with kegs of beer on the road will never leave my mind. Buried under that mess was a family of four who lost their lives.

        I think we all have a few moments (some good and others bad) that are seared into our brains. That is one for me.

        Thanks Chelsea, part 2 is after work tomorrow. Then I’ll know how bad it going to be.

    Driving leaves lots of time for ruminating.
