Most of us lead pretty fast lives. We work hard and play harder.
Our daily commute ranges from bumper to bumper traffic, uninspiring travel and flip-offs.
Slow down and find peace.
. Traveling to the mountains of Western North Carolina offered four hours of mindful tranquility. I don't remember the last time I drove through the city with a smile on my face but I did so all weekend in the mountains. I find that there is something almost spiritual about driving under a burst of floating fall leaves kissed by a gust of wind. Watching them gracefully make their way down is heavenly.
Moonshine Mountain Rd, Raccoon Ln and Lickskillet Rd were just some of the charming street names that I encountered.
Be kind to yourself.
