You mention lost or painful love in many of your posts. I'm glad you see the road of love never ends, "unless you stop driving."

Good call. When you think about the amount of space we use in the form of paved roads, it reflects how much importance we place on having the choice to go anywhere we like. We are compelled to do it. This is also a cheery post for anyone who feels they are in a dead end. There's no such thing.
