Driving I-95 S. With Wabi Sabi.


55 F.
6:15 am.

Red tail light blinkers flash ahead.
One car after another, clears the way.
Left lane is all mine today. All mine.

Autumn hues frame the highway.
The browns, the yellows, the reds flash by.
The clouds, paintings, gliding silently overhead.

What is this?

It’s Roland Barthes in Deliberation: The window is wide open, the gray day has lifted now. I experience a certain floating euphoria: everything is liquid, aerated, drinkable (I drink the air, the moment, the garden)

7 on 70s spin on Sirius. Boz Scaggs playing Lowdown:

Nothin’ you can’t handle
Nothin’ you ain’t got


17 minutes door-to-door.

Game time.



  1. That’s called going with the flow. Or just a tad faster.

  3. When you’ve got a tailwind, you go with it. Hope the ‘traffic angels’ are with you on the commute home as well, pal….
