The Shape of Things to Come
Finding this lovely little vehicle surrounded by behemoths made me run back to the car for my camera. Right now these are a cause for pointing and comment, but eventually they will be normal.
Now if I'd just had my camera yesterday on the way home from work when four lanes of traffic were stopped by a slow, single file procession of a dozen Canada geese... They were perfectly spaced and walked so slowly I imagined it had been rehearsed to music. It looked like a moving Egyptian frieze. They completely ignored the cars. I let out a gleeful whoop and clapped my hands over my head. "You great feathered ninnyhammers! So who really owns this pavement, eh?" Around me other drivers, also stopped for the minute or so it took to complete the crossing, were grinning at each other, shaking their heads, and being put in different moods.
