The other evening going to our friend’s house for
Darling Daughter’s Birthday, I kept on playing with
the camera, not really knowing if anything would come of it.
I was really surprised to see that instead I took a trip
down memory lane, going all the way to some
long forgotten childhood memories…
Car lights ahead were blurred away by the falling rain,
every thing had such a mysterious feel to it. The motion of the car,
combined with the nice heat was taking me far away,
back to another time. I was slowly falling into a sleepy state
remembering of other car trips taken long, long time ago
during other cold rainy November nights…
I could have been either eight or nine years old tightly tucked
between my siblings, listening to the soft rhythm
of the windshield whippers lullaby.
You see, as a family we always traveled at night
when we had to go visit distant relatives…
Until last Saturday, I had forgotten how much, as a child,
I loved traveling in our car, on cold rainy nights, for
those long, long journeys. Feeling warm, protected
and slowly drifting away into a sleepy, dreamy state
where fiction and reality were dancing together
like those rain drops on the windshield.
What do you love about rainy November lights?
