A Little Stretch of Interstate

Do this while it is still spring. Choose a pre-dusk moment when traffic is at its tamest. In the automobile of your choice, pick up I-40 West. Do so just east of White Bridge Road. Notice, if you will, the green hills ahead and to your right. Pay particular attention to the bend in the Interstate a minute or so past Exit 199. Taste the portrait the light makes upon that bend–even when there is no light. Travel at least as far as Exit 196 to Highway 70. It is a brief jaunt. And it is one of the many things I love about this city.

Do the same thing two weeks into autumn.

    It is a pretty drive, and, you can come visit me at exit 196.
