“All humanity winds up in a taxi at one point or another.” – Dorothea Benton Frank, American author I just love that line from one of her novels.  All of us, at least once in our life, have gotten lost.  We took a wrong turn, or we weren’t paying attention, or we just didn’t know where to go next.  Maybe we were running away, or perhaps we were returning home – anxious, excited, scared, alone.  We’ve all sat in the back seat of that taxi, in an unfamiliar place, dependent on a driver who probably doesn’t speak our language very well, waiting to be taken somewhere.  Suddenly our status, our money, our past – none of that seems to matter sitting in the back seat of a taxi.  […]
