To Travel Far

To travel far, we have to go among the people here and there. We can’t avoid them anywhere. They mess up traffic’s perfect flow and make our trip go way too slow. Stress has us pulling out our hair - to travel far! Though traffic each day seems to grow, and though we find it so unfair, at least we now can take to air! Not so for folks from long ago. To travel far! By Andrea Dietrich Written 7/26/12 for nette onclaud's RONDINE THE TRAFFIC OF LIFE Poetry Contest

    Hi Andrea, i don't think i could have adapted way back then... I don't know how this world traveled without cars, and all of the above... way way way back then... good luck in the contest...pd

    Reads like a winner to me.Enjoyed reading your entry.Good luck in Nette's great contest.Life is not always easy but in difficult times we usually have hope of a brighter tomorrown.Thanks for stopping by my work.Your presence was uplifting.Yes, much in the Bible could be metaphorical and total separation from God and anything good seems like it would be a very strong punishment but then some people seem like that they want nothing to do with good or God so I guess that wouldn't be for them.Sara

    You'd love the Indianapolis 500. Howsomever, they don't really travel far, just go around in a great big circle. I got a chuckle out of this one, Andrea. Thanks for making my day. Love, daver
