let me tell you!

I love highways, interstates, and overpasses. Maybe it's from growing up in Long Island. But I love the curves, the cloverleafs, the elegant military-industrialness of these things that our old president laid upon our nation. They feel so easy to use, so fast, and so simple. And, most importantly, they are grand. Expansive.

Portland has some lovely interchanges, the best ones on Interstate Avenue. Driving underneath them, for that is what one most often does, one feels dwarfed, and that's the point. Underneath the greater good.

Lindsay's wall, her mural and her gift, remind me of that feeling. It is a "You Are Here" kind of experience.

I would like, I think, to live in the interstices of the interchange.
