Where is Reverse?
"Absolutely. What all do I need to know about it?" he asked.
"Well, the rebuilt engine is perfect. Everything works on the interior. The A/C blows cold which is a treat with these old Vanagons. But Chris, I have to tell you, there is no reverse."
"No reverse? What do you mean?"
"Just that. There is no reverse. You can only go forward, so be careful where you park and think first before going anywhere that you might need to back up, because you can't. There is no going back."
"Well, isn't that interesting..."
Is there a metaphor for life in there? Can we ever go back? I'm reminded of the quote that is attributed equally to Emerson, Holmes, and Einstein... "A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions." How will your life move forward from this worldwide shared experience?
