Day #135: Galaxie 500 – “Strange”
I have made this drive back home hundreds of times since living in DC, and finished another roundtrip tonight. The drive almost feels like the progression through an orchestra. The hour the stretch on the interstate through North Carolina becomes pitch black. The morning sun finally rising over the marsh as I pass the Georgia state line. Passing the same exit when I start to feel like I will never make it to the other end of South Carolina. The accidents creating the traffic jam as I approach Lumberton. The inevitable 3-lane bottleneck in Frederick when I am so close to home and so tired of driving. The breeze of a drive in the HOV lanes through DC late at night. The relief to finally be off the road, in either direction.
