One Time On a Road Trip

I was standing on the corner in Winslow, Arizona with my best friend. We walked around and we got back into our car and we listened to The Eagles song "Take It Easy" over and over again. There's not much to see in Winslow, Arizona, so I don't recommend going out of your way, but there is some wonderful wisdom in that song:

"Take it easy
Take it easy
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...

We may lose and we may win
Though we will never be here again
...
And take it easy,"

I like the image of our "wheels turning" to describe our thinker thinkin' because the circle of the wheels reminds me of a volume knob. I'm trying to turn down the volume of the storylines, assumptions, worst-case-scenarios, and lists in my head. And take it easy.
