It's little scenes like the above that set me thinking on a trip like this. The next half hour, 20 miles, 4 or 5 songs on the iPod... mostly thinking about mortality. Then see something else, and the internal dialog changes subjects. It's a way of interacting with the environment and surroundings that doesn't happen when stationary, doesn't happen when moving in an airplane, or interstate. Sometimes I'd save the thought, and later at dinner I'd remember and Francine and I would discuss it.

I'm not sure how helmet intercoms might change this dynamic. I kind of like it how it is. Instant gratification vs. instant Karma.

"Instant Karma's gonna get you,
Gonna knock you right on the head,
You better get yourself together,
Pretty soon you're gonna be dead..."
