What’s the Rush?

Haste is universal because everyone is in flight from himself.
Friedrich Nietzsche, Untimely Meditations

We are always in a hurry.

Especially when we are driving.

Every trip is a challenge to get to the destination as quickly as possible.

I find myself doing this even when I’m ahead of schedule — even when I don’t know what I’m going to do once I arrive.

The road is not the only place we are in a rush.
