Room enough (a throwback Thursday post)

I read this challenge, and was immediately struck with the coincidence.

roomA little earlier today, I walked my baby girl to her job … (gulp) yes her first job. She’s in a glass “room” (car) heading down to where she works. As I watched her I could hear the song by Dixie Chicks… “give her wide open spaces, room to make the big mistakes.”


Like a few other English words, Room means two contradictory things. It can be the four walls that enclose us, giving us shelter and comfort but also limiting our movement. It’s also the limitless space into which we can wander and which we can fill — or try to (think about that expression, “room to grow”).

“Wide open spaces, room enough to make the big mistakes.” Dixie Chicks
