On the Road

The great void that has been my blog for the last month has been secretly filled with term papers, grading, and moving home to Los Angeles. There are numerous things I missed about Los Angeles, but the one joy that has been unparalleled since my return is driving.

Navigating a car through the boulevards, avenues, and twelve lane interstates of LA is an art. It envelopes your senses and engages your mind. Strategy is necessary; timing is everything. And the rhythmic weave of cars between lanes, riding inches from your bumper, is like a ballet of steel. I am a four door black ballerina with leather, back on stage.
