High Hopes

I grew up deciding the world was nothing but a sad, dangerous junk pile heaped with shabby gee-gaws, the bullies who peddled them, and the broken-up human beings who worked the line. Some good people came along, and they softened my opinion. So I’m open to any evidence they can show me that God’s not asleep at the wheel, barreling blind down the highway with all us dumb scared creatures screaming in the back seat.

    Remember, as my Mother use to say to me, “Think Positive and
    all will be right in your life.” Sometimes this worked for me, but
    all in all I have survived what comes my way. This might work for
    you and others in this messed up world.

    I scream a lot– still I hope someone who knows how to drive is at the wheel? Namaste

      I think maybe the driver slips in and out of consciousness. That would explain all the dents in the car. And in the people inside the car. : /
