There are many distractions in life. Some are brought to us by no means of our own. Others, we seek out in order to prevent us from acknowledging something we would rather leave alone. I bought a Camaro today. There are a few reasons for doing so. Some are good. Some are not. I have been getting that itch to get a 6-speed manual transmission. That box has been checked. I am sure there is some ego and vanity mixed in there as well. But, for the purpose of this conversation, it is a lovely distraction. I love the feel of shifting gears and going fast. That is a great distraction from the stresses of life. Suddenly, I am hoping for a warm winter.
