The Road Less Traveled
Groundhog Day on Five Mile Road
Northville, Michigan: from our door it’s 30 seconds to the gas station, grocery store, Einstein Bagel, CVS, Jet Pizza and Home Depot.
Typical suburban sprawl. Four minutes to the freeway, 20 minutes, give-or-take, east to the airport, or west to the campus of U of M in Ann Arbor; 25 minutes barreling across I-96 on a good day to get all the way downtown. Detroit.
Something magical happens in the snow here, in the camera lens and the gloaming of late afternoon. A different light.
