401 Westbound, somewhere in Ontario
Thematic. Greyish. Here.
But I still get a twinge every time we load up the car and head somewhere. Even if it's the 730 km drive back to Montreal, it's a drive, an experience, an adventure. And if we take the time to drink it in a little, we might yet learn a little something - about our world, about ourselves, or both - along the way.
I think this pic summarizes that feeling rather nicely. It had been rainy for much of the trip, and the kids were quietly doing their own thing in back. I was in the front passenger seat trying to amuse myself with my iPad, and as ridiculous as I must have looked shooting random pictures with a tablet, it struck me as just the kind of thing to do when you're on a grand adventure with your family.
I hope they look back on these drives someday and smile as much as I do.
