  • The roads of life narrow as you grow older and get faster, the buildings taller and harder to see past. After the arrival of another polite rejection letter you lay around in that penetrating numbness and the fog of blue morning light.

    For a fleeting moment the brunt shove of rejection pushes your ego aside and you see the glorious landscapes that stretch out behind the towering figures.

    You gather, rebuild, get up, go out into the vistas. The open road leads you, more tall buildings on a far off horizon.
