Winslow, Arizona was a drive-by for me in 2007. I drove into town, saw the famous corner and the bronze statue and kept right on driving.
As I remember, I was heading for a job in northern Arizona. No time to stop. no time to linger, no time to reminisce.
Rolling on ahead to 2017, I am once again heading west to another job. The difference is this time I am making time to linger; to reminisce; to enjoy the journey.
If you are a fan of the Eagles and even if you are not, you will probably remember the song, Take It Easy.
It’s a song of hope and possible salvation ~ a guy standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona and a girl in a flatbed Ford slowing down to take a look….
My favorite lines from that song:
Don’t let the sound of your own wheels
drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
don’t even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand
and take it easy ~
