The 4 lane highway winds its way past the yellow moon rising above a lonesome, dark, blue hillside. Diverging paths along one of the highways create the yellow twist defined by the yellow string in this painting called “Blue Wind”. Behind it is the blue diverging path along the other highway.
This kind of interchange called the “Windmill” can be confusing to the driver because it demands that the highway be traversed partly on the wrong (left) side of the road.
The off ramps are sharper than the on ramps. This reduces the amount of traffic and the speed that can be entertained on the interchange. And so, fortunately, drivers have time to enjoy that moon slowly rising into the darkening sky.
Perhaps in life we need this kind of interchange explained to us and once we understand its features and how life goes on because of it, we can get used to the more difficult and sharper turns of life.
