Taking the long way around 

There is a beautiful song by the Dixie Chicks “Taking the Long Way Around” that is about not following the proscribed path. It’s a wonderful song about following your dreams and living life your own way. My own life does not match the lyrics of the song. I settled down and and “moved into the zip code where my parents lived.” This weekend I revisited that song as I found myself unable to drive home the usual way because of a road blockage. My “long way around” was the literal drive up the canyon and around. I wasn’t thrilled to have to drive 25 miles instead of 7 home but the silver lining is enjoying this song again! The video even has photos that look like our Canyon.
