Day 10 #SOL17
Michael crouches in the driveway against the curb where a flower garden lies. It is not the weeds or the flowers that call to him, but the dirt. The dirt is the foundation for the roadways he lays for the matchbox cars to travel upon. These are not simple roads, but intricate highways through the zinnias and marigolds. The highways have on and off ramps and, of course, since it is Chester County there are definitely back roads. Back roads are what his grandfather uses on their adventures through the countryside.
Yesterday was Michael’s birthday. He is in his thirties and there are no more roads in the flower garden. Now, he traverses the highways of Southern California which may resemble his flower garden routes. His engineering skills were only for his childhood, but Michael still enjoys driving on the open road.
