… On The Road #3 – SAMROADING

Many people will give you many a advice about what speed to drive at in varying traffic conditions. Some say drive at a speed that suits your style and reflexes. Some say that always have patience and be slow, for there’s an accident always awaiting round the corner.

I say – drive at the speed of the traffic! Not necessarily tucked behind someones back but maintain some distance and keep a check that you aren’t getting left behind while also ensuring that you don’t start to lose your concentration if they increase their pace.

Most accidents on the road occur because you are either too slow or too fast. Too slow and you get bumped from behind by someone moving even at mediocre speeds. Too fast and you all know where they go! 🙂

What the aforesaid advice also does is, keeps your brain free from a lot of unnecessary clutter clouding your brain – “What will I have for lunch”, “Will I get home early and have sex tonight” or “I wonder if I want to see my boss’s face today” and bla bla! This way you are kept moderately busy while you can hog a chocolate when the traffic gets slower in city conditions whereas on the highways, better have chocolates at some restaurants! 😀

Today’s daily prompt gave me an idea to name this series of posts about how to go about driving in this mad rash world of hateful drivers – SAMROADING!

So SAMROADING says, never rush and ALWAYS LISTEN TO DEEP PURPLE!

… On The Road #2

Do not overtake someone only to slow down right in front of him. This is the most annoying thing you do while driving! Not only are you wasting a lot of someones time, you are also garnering a lot of negative praises that are hitting your back and may also be true! 😉

But then, there is never any harm in knowing the truth, is there?

Just Like Everyday

I awake to the haze of this world, I see hope instilled in a dream, just like everyday.

I take to that same old rocky road, I see routine, I smile, just like everyday.

I see people, leaving their prints on the road, cursing and hopeless, just like everyday.

I look up, the sun shines on my sunglasses, I feel warmth, just like everyday.

I look at my office, I see challenge, I clench my fist, just like everyday.

I see the evening sun, a round orange and crimson of cool, I soak, just like everyday.

I come home, greeted by an eager companion, wagging his tail, just like everyday.

I meet you, the incredible invisible yet believable people, chasing a million other dreams, just like everyday.

I hold the dream of a better tomorrow close to my heart, unseen to others, silently burdened, just like everyday.

The night dawns upon me, webbed bloodshot eyes, sleep is distant, just like everyday.

I leave today everyday, writing the yesterday into my legacy, awaiting tomorrow, just like everyday.

I live in today, just like everyday!
