Seventy Miles Per Hour

    traveling 70 miles per hour

    you could rush to here

    or maybe here

...and it might not matter


    or you could wrap yourself in this single spot

...and it might not matter either

if I could wrap myself in that single spot it would definitely matter :)

Karen said...

I'll take the single spot - and to me, it does matter!

Nevine said...

I'll take this spot, too. But after I've rushed to all of those other spots... too exciting to miss!

jason evans said...

Tabitha and Karen, yes, it certainly is a pretty spot.

Nevine, pretty amazing. Maybe a nice spot to retire. When I'm too tired to go any farther.

Aniket said...

I too like the spot, but for now... I'll enjoy the ride. Step on it...

Preeti said...

The Spot. But at certain times...the others too...
it really doesn't matter though...

:-)

amazing how a few pictures are triggering so many thoughts...

the walking man said...

I for one will move the needle as fast as the old machine will take me and when I do stand still, I will simply stand still, and wrap myself in that moment as well.

Both have an elegant beauty to them.

Life's too short to go ruching around to anywhere.

Gentle stroll to a nice spot - with a bar. All you need is beer...;-)

Limpidus said...

I'd say, travelling 70 miles per hour and brushing past several spots make it too much to matter. And yet, the plurality of it is threatening.

jason evans said...

Aniket, you're gassed up and ready to go!

Preeti, thanks! I thought this post would poke a few brain cells.

Walking Man, enjoying both is good. Holding to one or the other too strongly, probably not.

Four Dinners, I'll meet you at that bar!

Limpidus, these pictures were taken at 70 miles per hour when I was thinking about what matters and what doesn't. Not too bad for a Blackberry phone. I thought they would be just mud.

Profound!

i had to read the comments to have a clue about what you were referring to - an interesting thought.
most spots are just as good as the other. you know, in the 'if you have lemons...' kind of way.

I like the one spot best... but I tend to do more of the rushing! Darn!

But if I can look at a Monet, I could stay in that spot indefinitely! (Seurat, too.)
