Rainy Day Drive

"I want a car that is old, and uncomfortable.  I don't want airbags, electric windows, a heater, A/C, or any luxury at all really.  I want random squeaks/rattles and the overwhelming smell of unburned gasoline."  Thats not exactly what I said but I did sell my nice / fast BMW and got exactly that...and I can honestly say that I wouldn't have it any other way. 

Today society puts a huge emphasis on the "logical" decisions.  And that is fine and all...but that doesn't leave a lot of room for us to make decisions with our hearts.  This decision was made with nothing but my heart.  Don't get me wrong I'm not trying to toot my own horn and it definitely has not been an easy path to walk...it's just been worth it.  At times I have been stranded in the middle of the road pushing my car to the side...but I have also been dying of laughter by myself as I drive on to the boat crossing over into Canada 1,500 miles from home.  The highs of this car are so good that no low can bring me down enough to regret the decision.  I don't think every decision should be made without logic...but I think everyone should find that ONE thing that they really want and they get it... even if it goes against all logic.  It won't be easy all the time but I'm confident it will be worth it.

I have been working on this car since I was 17 with my father.  While this car came together so did my confidence and my ability to find beauty in everything.  This allowed me to see things not for what they were but for what they could be and it has helped shape my view of most things.
