Garden State Parkway [7-20-07]

Driving, nothing seems to deliver earth shattering clarity quite like a long car ride. So much time confined in a box whirring 70 miles and hour down the road. Everything seems to be put into perspective when you're looking at the world through a side-view  mirror. On a road trip my world seems to be shrunk down to all the things that truly matter. The earth, the sky, this beautiful world we live in. At times like these all I can think it 'God I want to see every inch of it'. And here I am, in this little slice of perfection, floating somewhere between the tang of salt air and the roar of the ocean. Not quite touching the earth or heaven, suspended in this transient bliss. I could be alone here forever, chasing this poetic ideal of the quiet hummings of a small town that thrives on the sand and the sea. I'd paint oils onto canvas, filling books with words like, these, words that only I'd see until the ocean breeze blows away the last of me, like the woman in that story where the rain talks. Speaks volumes more than any human could. 

Then there'd be nothing left but filled up pages and covered canvases. A quiet and lovely legacy for no one special to inherit. It's so tempting and alluring, like a sailor giving into the beckoning siren call, accepting his untimely end, for it will be a tragically beautiful one.
