Driving

Thanks for all your comments and voting on my mini-van color. I appreciate it. I'm less sure about the color now but also feel in a different head-space now.

I just passed my written and vision test today for my driver's license as I have to every five years.

I watched a lady in a walker take the same test. It made me feel better and worse. Better because it seems as far as the DMV is concerned I don't think it matters what disability you have they cover themselves by having you take a written and vision test unless you prove to be a bad driver and require the expense of a driving test.

And worse because I don't know about you but I think every time before I drive "Am I up for this?" I never take driving for granted. It's a privilege I have that I lost for a while. Not because of the DMV but because it made my wrists hurt too much.

Some people never think about what a privilege driving is. And how so many people around the world don't have it because they can't afford a car.

I'm glad I had that moment of reflection.

I totally agree with you about driving being a privilege. So many people mistakenly believe it's a right; it ain't. It's refreshing to hear your reflection on this!
