- "The young have aspirations that never come to pass, the old have reminiscences of what never happened" .. Saki, a British writer influenced by P.G.Wodehouse, Oscar Wilde and Noel Coward
The Expressway Experience is a central component of Boston commuting. It was supposed to be quick but that didn't happen. Captured on film, however, is one shining moment long ago, when traffic appears to have flowed smoothly southbound somewhere near the Dorchester Gas Tank area. Could that have happened? Hey, a picture doesn't lie. Or does it? No matter, savor the image. It was fleeting as we know too well.
Sing along with The Beatles' "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds": Picture yourself on the Southeast Expressway, in Dirty Old Boston when traffic was high. Reality calls you, you respond most slowly. Tempers are heavy, arrival not nigh ... Give me a ticket to an airplane.
