Long roads to nowhere

Long roads to nowhere

Driving on long roads to nowhere, there plays a time-lapse film of the rise & setting sun. The sound of cicadas wax & wane like waves on the ocean, as heat haze dance on the horizon.

Suddenly, the world erupts with dust clouds within dust clouds & columns of veiled sunlight, until the harsh glare of midday's sun radiates the windscreen & daylight is consumed by night.

Lightning strikes in the distance & then is all around: like a strobe light on the landscape, night turns to day again & again. Until a sudden barrage of hard rain makes it difficult to see the road in front. Your tyres aquaplane, & the world is buffeted by strong winds that shunt the car sideways. But the weather soon clears & dawn resets the loop on a new day, as the sound of cicadas wax & wane like waves on the ocean.
