"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Doing All the Driving

The project: Drive the 270 mile round trip on a family getaway while The Husband rests his bad knee.

5 hours

Why bother?
Confession: I love to drive.

That said, I also enjoy reading and never seem to get enough, particularly these days. So I had looked forward to some relatively quiet time, strapped in my seat, reclined, enjoying the warmth of the sun shining through safety glass while I caught up a bit. But Dear Husband recently hurt his knee. While he could share the driving, his preference is the passenger seat, injury or no. So, I gave up that quiet reading time in favor of rest for him, peace for us all, and a secondary reward of some driving time.

Worth it?
Yes. (And if I enjoy it, does it really count as a good deed?)
