The soothing hiss of the freeway

Yesterday we sat at an outdoor coffee shop, fairly close to a freeway. We’re Californians–the sound of the freeway is to us like the sound of the sea to people who live on the coast of Maine: soothing, the sound of the world. We’re Californians–we didn’t want to think about the plume of air pollution that spreads out from a freeway, so that people living nearby are more prone to asthma, & lung cancer.
