Road Trip

We took a quick road trip last week to Emmett, Idaho. It's around 340 miles each way, mostly freeway through desert, with the inevitable construction along the way. In other words, nothing particularly special about the road itself. And we were only there overnight, to eat dinner and play games and return the next day.

As a kid, I would have been truly perplexed by our decision to take such a trip. But now? It was great -- quality time, a break from routine, and good friends. We told stories, pondered important questions, challenged each other to grow, laughed. Logically speaking, we could have done all of that at home, right? But as it so often does, the geographical space between here and there created relational space as well.
