Rue smile. Spaghetti Junction. Faced down. Opening of a new complex road interchange near my house. Challenging on all fronts. Trafalgar Square on my own doorstep. For a person who curates the change cause. I actually struggle. Dawn investigations. To explore. Understand all junctions. Exits. And where they lead. Redrawing my bearings. Boom. A new connecting road. Twins’ nursery run. 18 minutes now down to 5. How did that happen. Right under my nose. 13 extra minutes to play with every morning. And early evening. Avoidance of traffic.

Enjoy the ride Tuesday.
