The Heart of the Matter

Dashboard Light


The sun is setting. There is precious little light to write my song of praise to you -- only the glow from the dashboard of a 1983 Toyota taking me deeper into the sudden mountains of Mexico.

Victor, the driver, sees what I'm doing and turns on the overhead light, but I prefer the glow of the dashboard.

It's softer on the eyes and my heart rejoices in the romance of needing to write in order to see.

More on longing
