But I am in love with the Sunday morning drive, light rays streaming through the windshield, a long stretch of road telling me that all of it is mine for the taking. These days float above the rest, above the infamous city traffic, with bumpers like frustrated lovers: constantly almost kissing but not quite. Never quite.
What we know of weekdays are bright brake lights and the honking of horns done by irritable strangers who just want to make it home for dinner. In a metropolis so full of people looking for breathing room, Sundays are the stuff of miracles. The streets clear out and become wide open spaces. They just about beg me to conquer them. And so I do.
