【How to Keep an Auto, Mobile】

One can pause to appreciate all that is wonderful about a most luxurious auto -its good looks, its comfort, its atmosphere, its engineered design, even the way the engine roars.

Yet, the most luxurious automobile is anything but mobile, if without replenished fuel or properly inflated tires. Without pausing to address a draining tank or deflating tire, the auto is mobile no more.

With sustenance no more and as with lungs collapsed, all that remains of the auto is a model, a shell of a substitute.

That, and a question: how to keep an auto, mobile?

One might appreciate its beauty, which surpasses that of any other. Alas, this will not keep the auto, mobile.

One might describe the comfort of the cabin, which none other has the ability to so please. But this will not keep the auto, mobile.

One might ascertain the degree to which one is rejuvenated while seated inside, as none other has the power to realize. Neither will this keep the auto, mobile.

One might detail the marvels of its engineering feats, surpassing all other models that dare to rival its arrival. Nor will this keep the auto, mobile.

One might confirm the strong rumble of the engine’s firing, still like the best and better than most. But even this will not keep the auto, mobile.

Alternately, if an auto should leave its owner waylaid on the side of the road, what is the best way to get mobile again?

Now then, a waning tank or flattened tire could have been avoided with proper and timely maintenance, certainly not with knowing avoidance of these responsibilities.

Even in times of the accidental roadside nail, it is only with patch or replacement that the auto can return to full glory.

The wise relish in the opportunity to refuel or to fix the flat and so are gifted with powers of healing, not to mention a return to the auto, mobile again. The fool ignore signs of warning and fixate instead on times of yore, unwilling to admit the present fault, and are left only to bemoan or disregard the auto, mobile no more.

For in times of disrepair, it behooves even the best of the best to pause and assess, to admit and duly address a manner of repair.

Indeed, a reality of disrepair is done no favors in finding praise and recalling the nostalgia of the good ol’ days of mobile, which is not to posit the futility of praise and nostalgia.

Wisdom lies not in the simple possession of knowledge, but in the timely wielding of said knowledge.

To ever appreciate goodness in times of advantage, also to prevent or so minimize misfortune during those times of advantage, and not in the least, to be quick to resolve conflict arisen in times of disadvantage.

To cherish the auto at one’s dispense, to maintain properly the air, oil, and fuel when levels hint of faltering, to fill the tank or fix the flat when it befalls even the diligent.

Never with neglect, neither with excuse, nor with retaliative cursing, and ever with appropriate appreciation, attention, and action.

That is how one keeps an auto, mobile.
