Grateful for Our Vehicles for Escape and Sanctuary During the Pandemic

Many of us have increased gratitude for our cars since the beginning of the pandemic. We have always used them as “escape pods” and that is one of the many reasons we romanticize them. They allow us to literally flee our normal lives. Who hasn’t burned rubber leaving work, after all? Besides the obvious romantic connotations associated with the automobile, they are also a place of solitary refuge.
