So last Friday I drove though LA. I love Los Angeles. I lived there for many years. I drove in the traffic, and it’s always fun to drive this one stretch of the 5 from the 91 to Burbank. It’s a happy place for me – and if you have ever driven that stretch of road – you know how much traffic there is there. Still, there’s something about it.
It’s not like I can explain it to you. I think I just drove it thousands of times that I have built this connection to that stretch of road. It’s not even the prettiest drive, but I was in grad school at the time. I would leave my classes and drive that stretch of road to get to work in Burbank. I formed alot of my ideas and opinion on that stretch of road. I would leave a lecture and process through those ideas on the stretch of freeway. It was my solitude time.
I have a soul connection to that road. It just puts me at ease – semi-trucks and all. I get the soul part of the city there. I have a connection to it. It’s a good and safe place for me – although it can be some dangerous road sometimes. I feel at peace driving through LA.
