A writer’s job is to listen. To observe. To remain apart from the story.

Part 1 of 3: Leaving

Another typical day in the Pacific Northwest. If you’re a native, you know the drill.

A day when rain washes down in curtains, not drops.

When the highest setting on your windshield wipers prove useless against the torrential downpour tormenting you.

A day when you pray that the car that just backwashed you won’t hydroplane into you.

That kind of day.

Definitely not a day to be out and about in a SmartCar.

But I have work to do.

And the universe has a diabolical sense of humor.
