I've been thinking about cars and traveling the last several days, and looking through some of my photos of cars and automotive items. Back when cars had prominent radiator caps, an entire industry developed making elaborate ornaments to be fastened to the top of the cap. This one is for a 1930 Cadillac and depicts a woman leaning into the wind with her hair and cape flowing behind her. Must be super-woman!
We have limited our exposure to COVID-19 by mostly staying home and wearing masks when out in public. I suspected when this all began more than two months ago that hand-shaking would be a greeting that would disappear for a while. Now I grieve that the precaution of wearing a mask is a political statement, and I felt uncomfortable in the local hardware store with clerks and customers not wearing masks or maintaining social distancing. So this ornament expresses my yearning for the future when our spirits can be free and healthy.
