Driving Force

"As we roll along this way I am positive beyond a doubt that everything will be taken care of for us - that even you, as you drive - fearful of the wheel."
Jack Kerouac, On the Road

I'm doing some driving today for my internship and I am terrified. Is it weird that I some how feel comforted by the fact that Jack (a man who never said no to adventure) was fearful of the wheel too? There's Dean, just encouraging him. And encouraging me too. Oh, the power of writing.


  1. Hi Sam! I saw your more recent post about asking for help and found my way here to this post. I didn't start driving until I was 23 because I was so scared of it. A break up and a new "drive" for independence led me to the car dealership one morning. Also, having to take 5 separate busses to get the the dentist was getting old. I bought a new car, and sat in it alone in the lot. Now what? I had never been alone in a car before... but I got myself home. It took me a while to get used to driving, but I'm thankful for the freedom it has given me.
