I was on my way to College today, we had to go to do our group work assignment and I had asked one of my group members to pick me up.
I was showing off my knowledge of the shortest route to college, the one I take everyday... we are driving along and all of a sudden the turn that we always takes seems to have disappeared. We are lost and I'm aghast especially since for half the drive I had been boasting about the superiority of the route I took everyday
I am shocked - a road is a physical tangible reality wtf where did it go? A road can't just vanish into thin air!
The route I have been using it for months had changed in a span of one week.
It was shocking and funny in a not so amusing way as we were getting late for college.
After repeating 'how the **** can a road vanish' over and over, till my friend must have wanted to choke me to silence. I realized that of course the road had not disappeared only our access to it had changed.
Much like life... sometimes our path gets lost and we think its gone - its not gone. Just the way to get to the road has changed - the road is still there. We can reach it if we try to find another route that leads to it. Just access it from a different angle
It was such a subtle realization... exquisite even.
Unfortunately I don't think I did justice in the way I described it. But sometimes words no matter how well strung together can never do justice to a thought!
