I forgot how much I love driving. I haven't driven in two weeks. Getting into my car today was exhilarating. Gripping the gear shift. The feel of leather on leather as I slid my hand around the steering wheel. The simultaneous press and release motion between the gas and the clutch. The resistance of downshifting. Acceleration. Control. Power. The slow glide into the parking space. Sitting for just a moment while the heated seats embrace me before exiting into the cold, cruel world.
