A Girl of False Starts

You know that feeling of being stuck in bumper car traffic?

You can't move forward or go back, and going sideways is impossible also.

The little blue electric light above your head zaps on and off with irregularity, making the detection of a true and authentic spark difficult to discern.

So you just keep jerking front and back, bumping into a network of confusion, hoping that eventually someone will give you a sliver of clear space so that you can bust free and enjoy the ride.

This is where I am on the ride right now, and all those false starts and short-lived sparks are starting to add up in me. :-(
