Bad hare day

4 0 0

It’s election time which means turning one’s attention to the issues that are important.

This only takes an hour or two. A simple contemplation of what’s important to you. What better time to do that than on an early morning drive from Taupo back to Tauranga?

Now, I generally take the road less travelled when I make this trip. I’d rather take two minutes longer and take the scenic route, via Rotorua. It’s just a better class of motorist for some reason.

The beginning of this journey takes you through a lot of steam and old geysers. There’s distractions and natural sideshows all over the place.

None of this interested me – I’m looking for a clear, straight road and a good steady speed. Competence and common sense please.

Journey and thoughts progress harmoniously as this voter travels in a safe, warm cocoon through the darkness.

Soon the fog becomes so thick it’s unclear if the headlights should be on high beam or low beam. Either way it was hard to pick the corners so it’s just a matter of slowing down and taking it easy.

Better to make good choices and get the right outcome.
