This week’s prompt is DRIVING.


driving miss daisy

driving me crazy

driving miss daisy

driving me crazy

driving miss daisy

driving is crazy

driving miss daisy

i must be crazy

it’s all gone,

. . . hazy

My starter for ten, entitled DRIVING was inspired by enduring several hours of solo driving.

It’s starting point was thoughts about of the items on my “bucket list” when the term first became popular: spending an autumn and winter in an isolated cabin somewhere in the mountains. Not up to it physically anymore, unfortunately.
