This road goes nowhere. If you're on it, stop and think about that. Then again, you never know where nowhere leads. I've been on this road and there are times when I've paused to ask directions. "You can't get there from here" is a standard reply. I ask, where should I go? The shrugs are common. "It's up to you," they often say. So I sip my cola, eat my sandwich, and think ... if you were a writer, which way would you go? Back to where you were, which is not all that compelling. If it were, you'd still be there instead of on a road to nowhere. One that isn't marked. Order another cola and check your watch. When you decide, you will be on the road to somehere else.
