altered reality
point of view

990415






   today i went to a junkyard to help don find a replacement driver’s seat for his car. we found a seat in near-perfect condition in a wreck that had suffered a front-end collision.
   no one could get to it. we tried for ten minutes, but we could not remove the driver’s seat for don; there was no space for even the smallest arm in the group to manage a wrench or screwdriver between the driver’s seat and the firewall.
   while deb and don and pete tried all manner of contortions to get tools in place to remove the seat, i had an epiphany. originally i thought it had been a two-door Chevy Blazer, but in one of those strange moments of altered reality, the kind of moment where the whole world shifts and you see the picture as the old lady where at first there was just the maiden at her mirror, the Blazer changed. i was looking at a 4-door vehicle. the windshield and driver's door were entirely gone and the roof had been folded back over the rear seats to rescue the driver.
   i suspect i will drive much more safely for a time.
