The dogs ride harmoniously in the cargo area of our Outback.
Britt, my daughter snoozes in the back seat,
i-pod providing the soundtrack to her dreams.
The chatter from the front seat is steady and quiet.
Some of my most meaningful conversations have taken place in the car.
The stereo plays a stream of our most-loved CD's,
favorites that have taken this journey
with us many times before.
And down the road we hurtle,
toward times filled with music and laughter,
toward a place where change lurks on the horizon,
toward a future enhanced by vestiges of the past.
Back in a few days,
when you will see how much I remember,
and I will remember how much I have seen.
Until next time...
