My father always told me, you never know where life will take you. His statement was a bit of a warning, I think. He would tell me things like that, yet showed by example how to take advantage of adventure when I can. He was a great father. I think his message was: be flexible and enjoy it.
You look ahead, and you see that ahead is there, but it’s unclear what it actually is. You can fear what’s ahead, or, you can think it will be something interesting, something that will provide joy and pleasure and insight.
Ahead is there, just keep driving forward. At some point, it might not be there, but you can’t live your life worrying about that.
I am glad I have ahead ahead of me. I very feel lucky.
Since the above drawing and commentary was a bit odd, here are a few bonus drawings for you. The news did not inspire me today. Sometimes you just need a break from it!
Thanks for being here!

I still miss the Burma Shave signs and am sorry for all who missed them entirely. A pre-interstate relic, slowly disappearing between 1963 and 1966, they, along with playing the alphabet game, helped pass the miles when the pace of getting ahead was somewhat slower.... Ahead!
I love your father's advice. Look ahead...lucky to be able to...and hopefully ahead, we'll continue to make the world a better place.
