Even though today is dreary, gray and rainy the music gave me that morning smile I strive for, making the day seem better and the colors of the trees a bit brighter.
The music I was listening to ran from Celtic instrumental from Medwin Goodall to rock-n-roll from Breaking Benjamin to Molly Hatchet and with each song my foot just got heavier. I found that as I listened, turning the music up, my foot began to depress the accelerator more and more until I finally had to set the cruise control so I wouldn't get a ticket.
I've been completely lucky and blessed by every God there is while driving that road, with 5 warnings and no tickets, I try not to test fate where that's concerned. I had to laugh at myself that I couldn't keep my car at speed no matter how hard I tried.
Anyway, despite the weather, I had an enjoyable morning, laughing at myself and listening to some incredible music.
