There was a night last week that qualified for a need to "just drive." It wasn't a bad night by any stretch, but I needed to think and relax. Those nights happen to all of us and if you are having one of those nights I suggest the following remedy.

I got in my car and drove down the backroads of Monroe.
Country roads are always best for "just driving."

The following two steps are key.
Roll down the windows.
Turn on Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run" record.
I don't care whether you're a fan of The Boss or not.
Make yourself be one because he's going to help you.

Bruce taught me a lot that night.
He taught me many things about freedom and that a man desperately needs it. We need to just go sometimes. Especially men. Here's another key...don't skip around the record...listen straight through. And let the saxophone solo in "Jungleland" send you on your way.
I don't know if it was what he was saying or just how he made me feel, but I did feel that "free" feeling.

One other thing I've learned:
Adventures are best when shared.
Just a side thought.
