Bleak Highway

(Whiteford, MI) This view of the fields of southern Michigan along US-23 is rather bleak, and the gray skies above made the scene especially dreary on a November afternoon.

Not even the consumerist wonder of a device like a one touch can opener can chase away the blues on a day like today, and my 1995 Hyundai Accent struggled to maintain a straight course in the 40-MPH gusts.

At one point mine was the only car on the road, and there is a certain isolated loneliness that accompanies a solitary trip in the middle of nowhere.
