Iím a part-time student in continuing education. I work full-time in sales and I travel a lot. Iíve got about ten classes to go to get my Bachelors in Fine Arts in Illustration.

When I read this poem, the visuals became very clear to me. As someone who uses the roadways as much as I do, I pictured the 690 overpass that goes from 690 West to I-81 South. When you are on that bridge, you get that view of the west end of the city and the downtown landscape.

Originally I did have cars in the foreground. To me, it just did not give enough mystery. I wanted the emphasis on the travel way and the openness of the road and sky.

Travel ways snaking
over, under, tying fast
