Grey road

After work, I decided to see if I could find a faster way home. I didn't find it, but had a great time. The last few times, I stayed too close to high, and the roads curved and dumped me on it.This time, I went far enough away to reach escape velocity, and ended up on the grey road... It's a metaphor really... when I'm on an unfamiliar road, and don't really care what it is so long as it's going vaguely in the right direction....

It was beautiful. The radio was playing a nice mix of old Hebrew music and other stuff (old Irish vocal music, etc), and I was enjoying the dark, empty, long roads that I wound across, slowly reaching making my way back here. There was a really nice variety of scenery, architecture, and the like. Occasionally I drove past places I think I might've been before, but I was never really sure, and their positions didn't seem quite right in relation to each other.

I'm somewhat bummed about something at work, but I don't really want to talk about that here. I'm worried....
