While I was wasting time on YouTube I came across this video of driving from Seattle to Mercer Island set to the soundtrack of Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run. It’s weirdly compelling, from the high-energy last stanza in the darkness of the Lid to the child’s voice you can occasionally hear.

I commute this stretch daily and love it– the lake, the mountains, the Boss.
Why did I spend 4 minutes watching this? I don’t know, but I think you should too.
