about this story

I woke up with a rush to drive. I felt lost, and that I needed something to be found within me. I packed a quick suit case. I sat in the car, revved my engine, and began the drive. On this search, I went to many places. I acquired many possessions, and I met many people. My first destination was Lake Michigan, a 5 hour drive. I arrived, overlooking the rowdy waters. I still haven't found what I had lost years ago. My next stop was an art Cafe. A man was drawing faces of people as they walked by. He saw me, standing and watching him as he drew. He instantly scribbled out mixtures of lines and smudges to produce a face. He ripped the sheet off. "You look like you're lost, take this. I hope you find yourself." He spoke slowly, in an accent I had not heard before. I left and passed a tree on my way to my next destination. It made me ponder that maybe I was looking in the wrong places. Maybe nature held the key. I took a picture of the naked tree, it had shed all of it's leaves. I drove hours more, until I reached the Cherry Blossom Festival. I took many pictures of the flowers attached to the tree and floating to the ground. I met a group of people there that had taken me under my wing. I suddenly felt a warm feeling inside me. It was serenity.
