So tell me, what’s the next step, I ask.
Suddenly, an image.
I am riding at night between two cities, lights on.
As it is to be expected, I cannot see the whole road in front of me.
I just know /expect it’s there.
I just have to pay attention to the signs.
I trust that there are road signs, if not man-made, then other kinds.
My vehicle's lights only show me the next few meters in front of me, then the next, then the next.
Following the road is what I trust will bring me to my destination.
Sometimes, depending on the signs, my driving ability, or on my ability to see, I will stop.
Doubting whether I am moving in the right direction.
Sometimes I might decide to go through the bushes, on rough terrain (off-road, V whispers).
At times, I might even decide to walk.
Walk for a while and then maybe return to the vehicle.
If I find it again.
Or reinvent the car.
(I'd already, several times, DID attempt to reinvent the wheel. So, there’s that 🙂 )
Sometimes I'll take hitchhikers with me.
How about when I take several (thousand) hitchhikers?
Hitchhikers who (I allow to) become co-pilots or even steal the car.
I did that.
I hope I learned not to do that anymore.
But now, in this fleeting moment, where am I?
And what do I see in front of me, in this lit semi-circle in the dark, what am I to follow?
And what kind of vehicle is this?
Is it a bicycle, will the weather wear me down?
Is it a car, and if yes, is it a durable one? Is it made to endure and is this car good for this planet?
Is this a car I love?
Does it go fast? Does it go slow?
What do I even want it to do?
Do I want it to go fast and reach my destination in no time?
Or do I want it to go slow enough for me to enjoy the landscape and the ride?
Is it a space ship?
.. Or teleportation?
