Open Road


The open road in New Mexico leads us ever onward. The wide open, empty highways travel through extraordinary landscapes and vistas.


The Open Road… leading from here on into infinity, under the blue skies of New Mexico.

It is hard to say where the road leads: everywhere and nowhere, both at the same time. All I know is that this very spot (or perhaps the spot a mile down the road, or a mile after that, or even a bit after that) marks the beginning of my journey.

As far as I can see there are no twists nor turns nor exits nor detours, nor anything at all to distract me from where I am going: the road runs as straight as is possible.

In the distance lies mountains of New Mexico. Or maybe those are the mountains of everywhere and nowhere. All I know is that the road runs right to them. It doesn’t really matter to me if the road runs over or through the mountains.

And really this road is a metaphor for my life, when it comes right down to it. My path is straight and true and I know where I am heading, at least, at the moment I do.

The open road calls me to now and it is time for me to go.
