Road To Nowhere

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Life on the road as a trucker can be described as numerous things ... Sister Mary Annette Gailey, formerly of Greencastle, discovered her calling to the sisterhood on the highway.
Gailey, 38, has pursued many of her passions, including child care, computer work and the opportunity to drive trucks. The long hours of quiet solitude as a trucker led Gailey's life down a new road.

"This particular venture allowed me to listen to the Holy Spirit," Gailey said. "It was a metaphoric* journey being played out."

*metaphor, n. 1(a) the appplication of a name or descriptive term or phrase to an object or action to which it is imaginatively but not literally applicable, e.g. a glaring error. (b) an instance of this... metaphoric, adj.
-Oxford Canadian Dictionary (paperback ed. 2004; pp. 635)
