NIGHT by Erika Nusser
Life is short, fast paced, and filled with fleeting moments. We spend our time driving from place to place in search of something to fill our lives. Sometimes it seems like we spend more time trying to get somewhere than being somewhere. We begin to actually start enjoying the time we spend traveling at this fast pace. The journey to nowhere is filled with anticipation of the unexpected moments. We begin to perceive the ordinary light of the night to be landmarks of the journey. By the end of the night journey sometimes all you remember are the lights of where you were trying to go.
