What is The Road?

Is the road a stretch of pavement, a means to an end, a lifestyle, or the reason for existance?

I like the definition, it seems to capture the essence of my understanding.

1. a wide way leading from one place to another, especially one with a specially prepared surface that vehicles can use.

  • synonyms: street, lane, avenue, boulevard, freeway, highway, parkway, thoroughfare, thruway, turnpike

2. a series of events or a course of action that will lead to a particular outcome.

 I love the road, both definitions.

Ask ten people and get as many different answers. For me, the road represents many things, the open air, the freedom, the destination but most of all it is on the road that I learn about myself, my strengths, weaknesses, and personal foibles.
