The Value of the Exhaustion of Repetition

Posted on July 27, 2012


Louisville, Kentucky

I love driving on road trips.  I don’t mind that the highways can all look the same after a while, or even the exhaustion of driving thousands of miles.

In fact, there is a special value to the exhaustion of repetition that road trips provide, at least for me.

I find that a good road trip clears my mind, and despite the monotony at times, all roads are a little different.  My soul and heart feel alive when I’m on the road to a place I’ve not visited before.  The more I travel the U.S. to our various national parks,  the more I love and appreciate our earth as the vast and varied enchanted oasis that it is.

Do any of you enjoy the meditative-like qualities of road trips?

Daily Contemplation:

Is there any activity that brings you value from the exhaustion of repetition?

P.S.  We are all fairly exhausted from our first day of travel to Louisville.  We’re only passing through on this trip. Even though to me it wasn’t a very long distance, 4 hours sleep the night before the trip began didn’t help.  Nevertheless, it’s great to be out on the road again.  Hope to have some road trip photos to share soon!
