As I was admiring this photo of the dirt road between Morondava and Belon’i Tsiribihina in the Menabe region of western Madagascar, I began to think about all the roads I've traveled, both literally and figuratively. I've driven down the iconic Route 66 through the US and sang Jimmy Buffet songs all along A1a in Florida. The treacherous Highway 1 down the California coast nearly took my life as it caved away in front of my car in the middle of the night. I've foolishly driven a road through window high flood waters and over a burning road during a forest fire. Still the road lures me, entices me, says "C'mon follow me just a little farther..." and like a child taking candy from a stranger....I go.
The road of life expects us to make decisions. College or Trade School. Marriage or Single. Children or Family. Save or Spend. Each fork in the road defines us as we maneuver around or run into the rocks and potholes placed in front of us. Sometimes we get stuck in the mud, other times we have smooth sailing. Often we take a breather in a rest area, but we eventually come to our final destination. My only advice is to take as many roads as possible and enjoy the ride, it may be our only real trip.
