Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Driving is an emotional outlet

It’s only a car.
Four tires, drive train, engine,
Headlights, bucket seats.

But get behind that wheel,
Roll the window down.
Turn up the radio.
Head out to the back roads.

Press that gas pedal.
Feel that power surge.
Faster and faster as you
Navigate the highway.

Miss the potholes.
Watch for stray dogs.
Faster, faster.

Drive away the anger.
Drive away the discontent.
Drive away the sorrow.
Just drive away . . .
