I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Saturday reflections

Here's a typical car, on a not-especially-interesting Midtown street, turning the ordinary into something wild and strange, and throwing back a crazy quilt of reflections.

It's autumn at last -- though the weather hasn't yet gotten with the program -- and I'm ready to wake up from the sluggish summer and start moving again. I'm going to Iceland in two weeks, just for a few days, then to the West Coast for Thanksgiving, and Ethiopia in January. And somewhere in there I am theoretically getting a brand new bathroom, which is a completely different kind of adventure and has required a lot more courage than a mere trek to the Simien Mountains of Central Africa.

It costs a lot more, too.
