Don't Hurry




At 40,000 feet things below look small. Little dots here and there. Giant oil tanks that look like little monopoly houses on a large scale board. We get from one place to another without really seeing anything. It once took us about a week to drive from Chicago to Miami on U.S. 41 back when I was a young pup, long before the interstates were completed. Little town after little town, one stoplight places. It took a long time, but you saw things, saw how people lived and where they lived. The Dao is never in a hurry and neither should we be.
