"Out there on black asphalt ribbons, deep in the heart of nowhere, I watch the images of towns and people grow smaller in my rearview mirror and finally fade to nothing. I feel at one with the speeding tires and the motion of the Jeep.... The movement seems strange yet vaguely familiar, as though it possesses a soul I once met but can't quite remember.... Those slowly disappearing images...and the blurry objects on the side of the highway were not solely optical events. They were fragments of time rushing past me, quickly and almost imperceptibly. I do not know where they went."
