Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1203: Thinking About a Light

A long day at work and now racing the clock. Rather glad that tomorrow is a day I have off.

Sitting here, trying to work out what to write, trying to work out if I should instead rest but I’m feeling the fire and so I need to keep going. Need to take advantage of that burning in be before it peters out and I am unable to write another word on this evening of evenings.

I need to think about what is and is not and how the light outside seems to shine on only one vehicle. Of course it shines on multiple ones, but from this angle it seems to shine on only one.

What is it doing? What is it trying to highlight? I am unable to discern the answer with a sense of ease and that may have to do with how tired I am currently feeling. However, I feel that there still is an answer that can be reached, so long as we look at things from a certain way.

Maybe the light is trying to tell me about what I should and should not desire. I can confirm that I do not desire the vehicle it is highlighting as it is not one that I would make use of. Maybe that will change one day, but at least for now the case is that that is not a vehicle I would drive. It is not one I want to engage in driving.

Maybe the light is trying to tell me about how objects can appear as part of a landscape though, when we look at them properly, we realise they are not. Maybe we are meant to realise that they are, even if they are moving. Maybe we are meant to realise that, despite our altering of what does and does not constitute nature, anything that is clearly not of nature still becomes part of the landscape.

It is possible that the light is trying to highlight the banality of the urban sprawl and what we consider as interesting and fantastic and all that.

Maybe the light has nothing to tell and just wanted to highlight a vehicle. That too is possible and so that is something that I need to consider.

There are plenty of ways that this could go, but the light is just doing what it does. It knows nothing else. It is either off or it is on and little else, if anything, is something that it will consider. The way that it shows things are relative to what surrounds it and its position. It sits out of reach – unless someone has the gear to get them up to where it is – and it provides light in a darkened area.

I think I have thought enough about the light and so I’m done thinking about the light now. I think that now it is the time to rest, but only after more thinking and rambling about structures of the urban.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:58:92

Rambling of the rambling variety.
Not the worst thing. I think there’s some interesting starts of ideas here.

Written at home.
