Life From The Sideview Mirror
This weekend was just one of those weekends when my wife and I both worked, I don’t remember the last time I spoke with my parents, sister, or friends, and I sit here Sunday evening still having to do taxes.
Is this what life is all about? Sometimes I feel like I’m looking in a side-view mirror, watching life go by at a weird angle. You see things you’ve passed up, some good, some bad. It’s good to take pictures of these events, since it sure makes them easier to remember. I think it’s good to enjoy yourself as you go. That’s where Mustangs fit into our lives. Whether you’re young, or just young-at-heart, these cars let you get in, hit the open road, and purr your worries away.
We enjoy roadtrips. We look through all the photos often… it’s fun to reminisce. However, I think sometimes people dwell on the past too much. Looking at the side-view mirror is great, in fact it’s necessary. But I remember what my driver’s education teacher and my parents taught me: “Check your mirrors often, but the most important thing is where you are and what’s in front of you.”
What a great metaphor for life. Here’s to Mustang motoring!
