A Hermit. A Mystic? -

Thank you to helios137

If you don't know where you're going -

This is the third story i have seen recently about men (at least two of them probably autistic) apparently finding deep peace in conditions ("wilderness") that others might consider dangerous, insufferable, or bizarre.

Drivers License Renewal Dread

Today i went out to get a badly needed haircut (i looked homeless) preparatory to getting my driver's license renewed.  It is a very nice cut, given me by the owner of the shop, who i had never met.  I knew that his teenage daughter had died two years ago on a school outing.  He seems to be still grieving.  Since the drowning had been a big story at the time, i felt i could offer condolences, and did.

Then at the DMV they called my number an instant after i drew it, giving no time for anxiety or panic.  I prayed that i would get a caring, compassionate, lenient clerk and that i would pass the eye test.  Indeed, the clerk was the epitome of friendliness and helpfulness.  I failed the eye test five times; then she noticed i had glasses hanging from my neck and asked if they were my "driving glasses."  I put them on and passed the test.  Now all i have to do is remember to wear them when i drive and i'm good for another four years.  Whew and Hooray.
