Existential Freakhood

I have somehow preserved a sense memory from learning to drive a car. That time during the process where you've mastered the basics, but reflexes are not fully mapped.

It helps me sometimes, such as when I'm brooding over something while driving. I'll take a mental step back, to a younger, more abstract mindset, and whatever worries I had are eclipsed by hoooly shit we're going impossibly fast! Hey wow, I'm steering! I'm driving this thing! I stare out at the massive expanses of pavement and ramps ahead and zooming by all around me. Or better yet, trees. Hundreds of thousands of trees flying by faster than any tree should go.

How unlikely we are. How delightfully absurd.
