Abstract Expressionist Buses

I don’t know much, but I do know that buses are bigger than regular cars. They are everywhere, gliding like a gentle behemoth down the highway. It’s almost like birdwatching (but better)–looking for certain kinds of impressive buses as you drive to whatever your destination might be.

Perhaps one day you will be out there on the road and see the large, rare MCI Coach; a truly majestic machine, some say. That would definitely be a day to consider yourself a lucky person. I have personally seen a few converted buses in my time, and let me tell you firsthand: Those buses can be anything you want them to be. It’s just so great seeing a giant vehicle moving tons of people around in an efficient way.

For some, even a motorhome bus can be a sight for sore eyes. Large vehicles just impress some of us more than others. It’s like looking at an abstract expressionist painting and everyone just scoffs, but there is one person in the back of the room who is crying their eyes out and having their life changed. For some of us, buses can do this–we call ourselves “the lucky ones,” and there is always room for one more.
