Rules of the Road

Rules, especially those connected with driving, make our lives function. They are posted everywhere, almost omnipresent. Yet sometimes they are just out of sight, especially when a driver tries to maneuver around an obstacle or navigate from one road to another. Drivers learn to interpret the colors, shapes, written messages and symbols in order to understand the information they present as we speed past on our life’s journey.

The Rules of the Road images are my visualization of my life as an ongoing road trip. The road, like my life, is constantly under construction. There are numerous detours and traffic jams as I continue to age. Each fork in the road leads to another destination, some intentional and others unplanned. I am constantly mapping my route, recalculating my course as I continue to the end of my ultimate road trip.
