Road Trip #1 – Conclusion

My first retirement road trip has concluded after three weeks.  Back to snowy Michigan and my own bed and the company of mom, Jim (and Molly who seemed not to care at all that I was gone).  It will be good to see my church family at South today and enjoy lunch with Mary, Steve and the “girls” as Mary calls them.

Along the way of my first road trip I wrote this little poem at one point.  I will post it here for what it is worth.

Rest Stop

It catches me by surprise
In a random moment
At a rest stop
On a bench

Almost brings tears to my eyes
Tightening of the stomach
No triggering event
Just happens

Starts an urge to think and write
And ponder and pray
The Spirit of God?
I wonder

Then it fades and thoughts take flight
Conditions now interfere
Stopped traffic ahead
