I use Mapquest for many things. What did we ever do without it? It's free, doesn't need a yearly update and couldn't be easier.
Now if we could have a Mapquest for life. Punch in where you are and where you want to be and bingo - the answer would be there. All the details at your fingertips, ready to go. Imagine trying to make a difficult decision and having an immediate answer. Just read on Twitter where Paula Abdul isn't coming back to American Idol - sounds like she has been in conflict for a while. Imagine how handy this would have been for her today. A teen could map out his/her future in a heartbeat and retirement would be a whole lot easier to figure out.
The options would be endless and pain-free. I can't imagine life ever being, pain-free. It is hard, confusing and scary. It is also wonderful, crazy and oh, so fun. The music alone was worth the Journey. The food and being around the dinner table, talking and sharing also, makes life well worth it.
If I could have Mapquest my life, it wouldn't have looked anything like it does. It wouldn't have been as good as it is. Good and Bad, you just can't plug in a beginning and ending and not experience the middle. It is in the Middle, we grow and change and learn and become better, smarter and wiser.
16.99 miles. That was interesting. I can't get there in 26 minutes, it has taken over 2 hours in the winter - Mapquest makes no adjustment for weather and love just like life...
