Midwife of Changes
November 4, 2011 - 10:22pm
Imagine your alarm goes off at 4:30 AM. You drag you "I am not a morning person" body out of bed and get ready for work. You spent the evening before getting petroleum for your vehicle to save time. After all, it takes two hours to get to work . . . in the summer.
But, now it is winter. It is minus something degrees outside. It is snowing - hard. About 4 new inches in your yard . . . and it is very dark because it is 6 AM. The car takes a few tries to turn-over - you know you need a new battery.
About 10 miles from home, you see (through the snow in the dark) a huge elk in the road ahead of you with oncoming headlights . . . you manage to stop in time. You will then climb up a mountain pass over 9 thousand feet above sea level on a two-lane road (before the first plow is dispatched), weave through a canyon and slip-slide up a narrow hill. And, now, you only have 25 miles left to go (with 60+ miles behind you).

Do you commute? If so, how long? Is the drive peaceful or anxiety producing? Would you prefer to work down the street - even if you earned less?
