A Drive to Nowhere

Summer Guide 2020

When there's no more bubble bath left and you've run out of recipes to attempt for your upcoming dinner, it is time to leave that stuffy house. Make yourself something healthy for dinner to replenish your energy and grab your aux cord; it is time for a sunset drive. The beauty in this mini-adventure is that there is no final destination. All you have to do is roll your windows down, find a non-trafficked road and hit shuffle on your favorite playlist.

I have found Green Bluff to be a particularly captivating spot to enjoy meditative drives. The rays of sun lighting up the bright green and golden pastures set the perfect backdrop for you to relax and look inward. In a time where none of us are certain what lies ahead, it is important to give ourselves moments to reflect on our emotions instead of ignoring them and burying them down deeper. Yes, it is perfectly OK to burst into tears while shouting "Sign of the Times," with Harry Styles.

The wonderful part about a sunset car drive is its simplistic yet powerful ability to give you the space you need to breathe. Get yourself some alone time and return home with a clear mind. Then go to bed.
