In this past Tuesday's Challenge of TRANSPORTATION I did not have any paintings pertaining to transportation in the sense that we most often think of the word.
I would like to share with you my thoughts about transportation. I recently renewed my driver's license this time I had to personally appear at the Texas Department of Public Safety. If you know me I do not write well especially under stress but none the less my dear husband accompanied me putting the checks in their right boxes but I had to sign the slip of paper within a certain area. It had been eight years since I had to appear in person which was before my Essential Tremor hit overdrive and had Deep Brain Stimulation surgery! I was terrified that since my signature no longer resembled what it did eight years ago and my hand was shacking that they would associate it with Parkinson.

The ladies questioned me about what I had, why my hands were shaking, and was the mark I made really my signature now. I was sweating trying to explain what I had and that it did not impair my driving! We seem to take our transportation for granted...we have a car (or in my case SUV), we get in the car going where we please. What would you do if your transportation was no longer available to you? At what time in your life would you willingly give up your freedom of transportation?

Just something to think about. Have a blessed week!
