To drive or to be driven?

May 15, 2009

That is the question.

I probably don’t have the money to pump petrol everyweek, but I do it anyway.

The feeling of driving, the sense of having control, is one of the few things in life that makes me optimistic. Loosing myself in the moment and clearing my mind off everything else, it brings me to a state of neutrality. It’s as if I am really in charge of my destiny, and no one else has anything to say about it.

I’ve made it a habit not to honk, even to the most reckless drivers. The world will be as it is. The only effort that I’m going to invest is into changing myself.

That’s part of why I don’t like bieng driven. Be it public transport, tuk-tuk or taxi, I hate the feeling of bieng dependent on another person. The way my mind wanders off somewhere into the future or entangles itself in a web of the past, while some stranger takes charge of my fate – is just plain wrong and feels like an insult to my existence.

    I like driving…but commuting kills me. I’d much rather sit in a bus, train, etc. I can have a nap, read a book, ogle a cute girl, etc.

    • Me Says:

      Where I live, one can’t easily take a nap or read a book while sitting on a bus. And most men do more than ogle when a cute girl gets on board.

    Independence feels good doesn’t it.
