The Sweep

January 14, 2005

I don't often get to be the passenger. When I am, even the most familiar routes seem infused with novelty. Tunnels and bridges hold a special fascination during night time drives. With tunnels I love the sudden entrapment of sound around the car and the rush of lights on a parallel, but opposing, trajectory with mine. Bridges at night afford a sweep up into darkness that I always find extremely comforting.
