Right or Left?

Buddhist monks often bless taxis by drawing Khmer script and symbols inside the car. But, usually the writing is on the ceiling. The cabbie told me that the monk was concerned about the driver's path in life and that the writing on the steering wheel is intended to help the driver find his way. It reminds me of my horoscope in the paper yesterday which told me I'll soon encounter a "fork in the road". Maybe I need a monk to tell me whether to go right or left.
