Life happens along those old highways, in the space of tiny towns that don’t show up on a map, and at the picnic tables of a roadside burger stand, and conversations that last for hours because the mountains and red rocks block the radio signal — and so you end up talking to whoever is with you on the journey instead of zoning out to music.

Let go of ages of importance that you came up with as a kid, a teenager, or a 20-something. Resist the urge to say, “By this age, I should have done x,y,z.”

I write essays and poetry about life lessons, love, relationships, and self-awareness. More info: + @meganminutillo.
