We are driving down the rain streaked streets. Since it is approaching Christmas time, the city is even more illuminated than normal. All of the light is dappled and reflected onto the asphalt. Squinting your eyes, you feel like you are zooming through time and space. One of the places I feel the most free is in the confines of a car. Passenger side, staring out at life on all sides of me passing by, singing out whatever song that is playing.
