(no subject)

More driving practice today. I've feeling a little tense, because we ventured out in traffic, and in a car, you have to be hyper aware of everything you're doing. On foot or on a bike, it's much easier to tell how much space you have and need between you and whatever obstacle you're passing, because you're right there and don't have feet of steel and glass around you. On foot or a bike, it's much harder to do damage to other people or property (it can be done, but it's more difficult.) When I'm driving, I'm constantly aware of that potential for damage, and it makes me overly cautious.

But, I drove in traffic, and practiced three point turns and parking, and Jeff said I did well. So. :)
