Signals shooting like invisible spider web strands through the air. A million silent voices looking for a dial and a speaker.

Rotating a dial, watching the needle move like a shark’s fin. Spluttering talk radio voices cackle in and out, short bursts of string sonatas or a twanging sitar.
 
Car radio making a soundtrack for a long drive, stones pinging against the undercarriage of the car. Trees black against a fading sky, looks like blue ice. Snacking on salty corn chips, triangle dishes of burnt corn and salt. Kangaroo jumps off the road and into the bush.

The radio stops me thinking and drowns my memories like a shower of rain into a pond.
