Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a picture from wherever.” When you sit down to write your post, find a picture, whether in a magazine, newspaper, or even product packaging. Write whatever thought or emotion the picture provokes. Enjoy!

I ran across this image while I was searching for a photo for a post that I’m preparing for the future. This visual pun made me grin. Ah, the proverbial fork in the road. Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both… and all. A choice is pressed upon you, and once decided, you’re stuck with your choice.

These forks can be ominous, or at least stressful, with large stakes in the making. However, sometimes the choices are opportunities, and I’m hoping that the fork that I see coming up on the horizon is going to be a positive turn. I am just learning about something called post traumatic growth, and so cannot really say if this fork is even feasible, but if it is, well… yay.

Also this looks photo looks like a stretch of road in Arizona (sans large flatware) that I got a speeding ticket on, so last century, as I was rushing home to California. Thirty feet from the state line and… oops. My cuteness and politeness talked down another speeding ticket to something less than the national debt. Ah, those were the days.

This post made me listen to the following song while I was writing this. For you see, the speeding ticket was obtained while pushing a little red CHEVette faster than any human ever made one of those tin cans go. 🙂 And I’ve always have sung this as Little Red Chevette (baby you’re much too fast, yes you are…).

omg. That brings back a LOT of memories! Mine had black vinyl seats. The first time I wore shorts while driving it was the last time I wore shorts while driving it. Shorts required a towel on the seat or you’d smell bacon frying. 🙂


  1. That image is fascinating. When we reach forks on our road, we have to choose and only later we come to know whether it was the correct one or not. Thank you for sharing your memories.

    1. Even later, it isn’t always clear if we took the right one or not! 🙂 I look back on some past forks and I have no clue if the other road was the better choice.

      1. My sincere apologies M. I missed that post while we’ve been away on holiday. (Pics to come but more beaches, not mountains I’m afraid!) I thought I’d caught up on all my unread messages, but I see that I still have it in my inbox. Thanks so much for the shout out. You’re very kind! The blog title came from me retiring and therefore lacking any day to day ‘focus’! (My wife’s idea!) 😊
