In memory of Dee-Dee. As a teenager, she thought she knew everything, wanted to feel everything and moved through life much too fast.

She got her first driver's license to love at 16, then spun out of control

on a red light, ignoring all of the road signs of life & the

first warning from the Holy One, but she continued to drive over Speed Bumps,

flooring it hard around Curves and Drop-offs like nobody's business,

Parallel parking with one wheel draped over the highest Curb,

scraping her tail-pipe.

When each Car wore out, she'd trade it in for another, and continue

gliding along congested Streets, open Highways & untraveled

Back-Roads on whims of fancied-passions that sparked her need to

play chicken with speeding Locomotives and Roadrunners, flying

along recklessly till one day, she got a Speeding Ticket, that served a

as the second warning from Him for her to stop! But she did not!

By the time she was 30, she had over 200 unpaid parking tickets in

her drawers. But, lo, she still went about dodging Road-Blocks and

Accidents with Jersey-Barriers, till He stopped her at the Crossroads,

with a final warning before she drove into a Brick-Wall,

the last one she didn't see, coming!

SAD...ONE GETS ON THAT 'FREEWAY', DETERMINED THAT THEY WILL BE THE ONE THAT WINS THE RACE....THAT GETS THE TROPHY. AND IT'S ALWAYS THE BUMP IN THE ROAD THAT WE DIDN'T 'SEE'...THAT TAKES US DOWN. EXCELLENT WORK...SO VERY ENJOYED...AS ALWAYS...YOU! THANKS FOR SHARING AND BLESSINGS.
LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
