I’ve been driving to work a lot lately, I know, it’s unusual, in fact on the way to work today my gas gauge started flashing. that hardly ever happens. But I’ve been giving N a ride to his office on the west side which has its advantages, namely, Atlanta. I love seeing this side of Atlanta in the perfect morning or afternoon light! The drive up Marietta in the morning is particularly lovely, sunlight hitting those colorful historic commercial strips just right, but it can be nice on the way home too through the heart of modern downtown Atlanta, even in traffic. I looked up from a stoplight to see this recently, the concrete structure is usually gray but on this day it glowed, redolent of the late-1980s. Rockin the recent past.
