I was You

The word automobile comes,
via the French automobile from the Ancient Greek word αὐτός (autós, "self") and the Latin mobilis ("movable"); meaning a vehicle that moves itself.

While driving back from York, South Carolina today, I noticed a gallery of former automobiles...
the scene took a moment to process.

Was that a row of cars?

I pulled over and turned around.

And there they were... rusty reminders of a slower time,
forced to watch their kin pass by.



Old Friends

From their roadside perch, the silent sentries spoke,
"Tu fui ego eris."

It is, as they say, the last laugh.
