100 Words: South

I like to drive south. 

There aren't many people who would admit that the points on a compass can have an effect on their mood, but I'm not most people. Heading north makes me feel business-like, brisk and efficient. 

Driving south just seems to unwind the tightness between my shoulder blades. It doesn't seem to matter that I'm only headed down the road a few miles. The tension slowly begins to uncoil, and I feel like I can let go a little. 

And the fact that the beach is in a southerly direction? Doesn't have anything to do with that.

  1. Funny thing, I have to drive north (from Florida) to get south (to Tennessee). I do know what you mean about being in the South though. It's more of a feeling than a destination.

  2. I like to drive west. The land begins to roll. I'm just not a flatlander. If the beach was a little closer, south and east would be a new favorite.

  3. Really?!?! Now I have to go try this…maybe I shouldn't base results on anything that happens when Miss New Driver goes for her second drive as I don't think any direction would soothe me there!

  4. Driving anywhere dies it for me. I want to rent an R.V. and drive all over the country like the movie Lost in America minus losing the nest egg!

  5. The blog or and best that is extremely useful to keep I can share the ideas of the future as this is really what I was looking for, I am very comfortable and pleased to come here. Thank you very much. Autism treatment in homeopathy
