One life, one road

“In a car you're always in a compartment, and because
you're used to it you don't realize that through that car
window everything you see is just more TV.
You're a passive observer and it is all moving by you boringly
in a frame.  On a cycle the frame is gone. You're completely
in contact with it all. You're in the scene, not just
watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming.”
