We stare at screens, from within bubbles, for too much of this short, precious life.

Convertibles are much better. Still, the windshield makes for yet another screen mediating between our experience of the world, and the world.

Of course, motorcycle helmets do much the same thing. And, it could be argued, even sunglasses serve to distance us from what Pirsig describes, above.

That’s why I love to bicycle. It’s the closest we ever get to flying, Man of Steel-style.
