Take a Drive.

c. David Grim (taken 6/22/09)

Here's something for y'all, stuck inside for the fourth day in a row. Where do you really want to be right now? Zooming down the highway 10-15 mph over the speed limit, the summer sun beating down on the blacktop, making everything go hazy and awry.

Where are you going in your head? Are you going to Philly, or DC, or Cleveland to see your favorite band? Are you making a quick jaunt over the state line to avoid the high PA tobacco tax? Have you saved a pocket full of cash to blow at the racetrack? Or are you just driving aimlessly, hoping to open a window of chaos into your life?

No. Today you aren't going anywhere. And for the foreseeable future you are staying put. But in a couple of months this will all be a surreal memory. Maybe you'll even be nostalgic for the cozy feeling of having no place to go. Stay warm.
