destination : in and out of a car : movement
i have had the good fortune over the past few days to hold authority over a car, and the only real thing i have to do in return is feed some cats. i have been able to attend events and patronize shops that i would not have been able to (or just decided not to.) and strangely, after a day of driving hither and yon, i am so much more exhausted than i imagined i could be, considering that driving basically just requires one to sit upright and awake. in the car and out of the car and in the car and out of the car and in the car again. i am thankful for the opportunity to run errands and to feel an independence that i do not normally have, having to rely on others to move around. and, i am also very appreciative of my carfriends who take the time to pick me up and drop me off.
