My Fear of Driving

I don’t think twice about traveling to foreign lands on my own but tremble at the thought of driving. I have driven, of course, but on limited routes. A few years ago, my husband and I sold my car because it was too expensive to keep and maintain for the few times I use it. And we both let out sighs of relief! I walk, take taxis, or use public transport to run errands and go places. I am very much aware, though, that my extreme discomfort in driving has hampered my ability to participate in out-of-state art workshops and exhibitions. But there are already too many unsafe drivers out there. I am one less to worry about.
