i was driving along today, and came to a certain stretch of road that is between two shopping areas. its the kind of place where you drive by, and are thankful for the break from store fronts, but to which you dont really pay attention. this stretch of road, however, holds a lot of memories for me. memories of my grandpa and i going to the store, going golfing, going to watch the eagles that nest in those trees, but most importantly, just hanging out with him. ive spent many hours driving that stretch of road with him, but now that im older, i dont get many chances to anymore. today i drove that stretch of road coming back from my piano/organ lesson, and all the memories, all the jokes, all the conversations came flooding back into my mind, and i realized how important that bland stretch of road is. not to everyone, but to my grandfather and i.
