The Road

And I can’t wait to get on the road again.
On the road again

Goin’ places that I’ve never been.
Seein’ things that I may never see again

And I can’t wait to get on the road again.
On the road again –
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway

Willie Nelson


I have been thinking a lot about roads lately.  Part of it I think is I’m getting the itch to travel.  I love traveling, I like to get away and see new places, new things.


The road is a path to maybe something new, something better, a route to escape my current daily struggles. It’s not unhappiness I am trying to escape, for I am very grateful and blessed to have what I have.

I know a lot is talked about Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” but I am not looking to forge a new path or trail, I think I just want to get on a different road.

Tear down some two-lane country
Who knows
Get lost and get right with my soul
Makes me wanna take
Makes me wanna take a back road.
Some old back road
