Historical photos #39

I’m a terrible driver and after T-boning a Mercdes at night and flying into a ditch and rolling my car two times, I ended up with a serious driving phobia so I didn’t drive for 30 years.. What I should have done was to be a professional crash tester.


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    With today’s seatbelts and airbags, maybe you should reconsider and think of becoming an Uber woman. No, don’t even think about it, walk, bicycle, hitchhike, skateboard, take public transportation, stay at home and let Amazon deliver your necessities, …

      I know it sounds insane. I have to start driving locally… it’s probably a deeply subconscious thing because as a child of age 6, my mother was in a bad car accident and was thrown out of the car and broke her jaw (as well as some other collateral damage, I think a broken rib and concussion/ double vision). She had to have her jaw wired shut for at least a month and it terrified me.

        I have a similar but much different family experience; my mother died in a car accident when I was about a year and a half old.
        Best wishes and prayers for you, stay on focus, no distractions. Some people can get away with carelessness, others not. I remember riding in the back seat of a friend’s car, and she would turn around to look at me to talk t me while she drove. I think that you are a person with much mental activity, and your thoughts could be a distraction. I had a severe but funny accident because distraction while bicycling fast at night.

        I’m so sorry to hear about your mother’s accident– that is really tragic. that is true what you say, i feel my thoughts get me very distracted when i have driven so a feeling of super ADD/ADHD as well as jittery panic and dread from other drivers, crazy people zooming into traffic from too short highway exits, motorcyclists actually doing wheelies, people on their phones… maybe I need a horse…

        my life kind of flashed before my eyes then. I can post the excerpt which is in the novel I’m writing.
