I keep driving on the road, surrounded by green grass and trees
The road is narrow and winding, with no curb. I am driving at a modest speed, enjoying the lush green grass and tree branches and leaves overhead. The branches reach over the asphalt from both sides. I am driving a blue Altima of uncertain age, but with the rounded body style. This is very familiar territory to me, as I have driven this in my mind many times. I am heading for the downtown and will arrive as night falls. After dark, I often end up driving in circles, as I have infrequently driven the streets. Parking is always bothersome, as there are few spots on the street and those with 24-hour meters.
