The Road to Sixty Meanders a Lot

It’s the silliest thing. You get this idea in your head, “the movie in my brain” as my friends know I call it, and you think it’s going to play out just like that. And the silly thing is that you’re surprised when it doesn’t. That’s when I feel as if I have to defer to the higher deities because someone is definitely pushing me in another direction at those times. Someone is looking down and laughing in delight at my chutzpah. How dare I decide where my life will take me?

I can hope and plan and make arrangements and pull the information and print the forms and fill out the documents and the DMV will STILL come up with something I’m missing so I have to go back again and again and again. I’m just sayin’.
