Forever lights

That's what my family calls those stop lights that take a long, long time to change. They are forever lights.

You hit them sometimes when you're driving home late at night. You stop at a perfectly quiet intersection and wait and wait and wait in the stillness.

That's how it is with forever lights. They make everything still around them.

It's funny to think that so many of us are rushing and rushing and rushing towards that moment when everything will stop.

Because of a forever light.
