The Great, Maligned American Road Trip
I wonder if, sometimes, we need to take a journey (actual or metaphorical) to determine the place we fit in our own community, in the story we're trying to write. I wonder if we're missing something by not embracing journeys as a way to grow into ourselves, and into our relationship with God.
I wonder if the most responsible thing we can do is to stop following all of the rules, to live out of our passions instead of obligations and to let down our facade to be who we were made to be.
