I’m sitting at the driver’s seat of a truck so that the guys moving some of my furniture don’t get a ticket.
I’ve never driven van or SUV before so I am sort of amazed at the view I get from here. Not only am I up higher, but the dashboard is lower and the side mirrors are also bigger. So, while the windows themselves may not be much larger than your average car, I do feel as though I can see so much more of my surroundings.
I can’t help but think it is sort of like the rare moments when I am able to lift myself up a bit from my day-to-day life. When I have a chance to look past the car ahead of me (i.e. the rush, worries, hassles, or chores that become part of the routine), I can see the road (i.e. my life) with better perspective.
I suppose the real question becomes: how can I play truck driver more often?
