hands upon the wheel

I don’t know what it is about driveways, maybe it’s their transience, that they exist in the moments aside arrival and departure, hellos and goodbyes, or that they offer so prompt an exit should things go awry, but there is a feeling of safety for the uncertain there which gives rest to fears and freedom to the lips. I can not pin point (and not for lack of trying) why it is that so many of my favourite conversations in this life have taken place in darkened driveways and resting cars. At night they hold some kind of magic. Passing them by day they look as a husk, nothing but a ghostly reminder of something that once passed through without a trace, but left marks on those who saw that will seldom ever fade.

  1. Hi, do you do work out south Auckland, Bombay? I need a large area concreted and a daweviry sealed, if you don’t go south can you recommend anyone? Cheers! Erica
