Missing Signs? Wrong Destination!
by Manijeh Motaghy
Missing Signs? Wrong Destination! is a story of how we can unknowingly take the wrong path and end up at the wrong destination. Miss all signs that indicate the direction and the destination, both literally and metaphorically. Years ago, my son, Kuroosh, who regularly competed at horse shows was participating at a show at the San Diego Fairgrounds. It was a beautiful sunny day and he had won the championship ribbon. At the end of the show he asked if he could stay to help his trainer pack up and return home with her and the rest of their group. I happily accepted. A proud mother, I left the fairgrounds to head home on my own. I can’t remember how much time had passed, but I found myself passing a toll booth. “That was bizarre,” I thought, “When did they start a toll booth between LA and San Diego?” Though it felt odd, I didn’t think much of it. Soon after the freeway became narrower and I saw the sign, Rosarito. How could I have missed all the other signs? 405 SOUTH? Was I in Mexico? First, I was shocked, then horrified, without a passport nor intending to do so I had passed the US border into Mexico.
Yes, thank God, things weren’t like they are today at the border.
