Wondering about the truckers

They are lone men traveling the countryside on a road that doesn’t seem to end. Some are frowning. Others have tattoos and toothy grins. Alone in a car that is bigger than the rest, they move alongside a tiny minivan crammed with our belongings. I look up and wonder who is their companion. Do they have wives? I wonder where they are coming from and where they are going. I wonder where their home is.

  1. Truckers live an interesting, nomadic life. My uncle worked as one for a family business many years ago. He came to dislike it, but there’s something about the driving on a long highway, maybe as the sun is settinf, across a painted desert, that just calls to my heart.
