Dashboard Abstract

I pulled into our driveway and parked in the shade of our yew tree, then noticed the kind of cool pattern of light and shade on the dash as I was getting my things together from the passenger’s seat.

There’s a white streak of road salt that I wish wasn’t there, probably from a backpack or a pair of boots when one of my daughters was getting a lift. I don’t like the way it bisects that area of black just left of center. But I had no wipes in the car, just a little bottle of hand sanitizer. And I knew there was a risk that the light would be gone before I could run inside for wipes or a wet paper towel. So I took the picture anyway. (Tell me: Would you even have noticed if I hadn’t confessed?)

    That is really cool….the salt residue does appear to be part of the pattern. I would say the
    glare from the window on the right side is more distracting.
