Some cars defy one’s capacity to describe or discuss them except in the most general terms. One of them is the 1996 Mazda Demio.
Here at DTW we spend a lot of time staring into the walls trying to fight off the ideas that spring up. The problem is that there are more ideas than time to do them justice. I’ve just blown three hours of my life penning a tract about Buicks and Opels. This was based on half a thought about the Opel Astra saloon that nobody cares about. How then can I say anything about the 1996 Mazda Demio which even I don’t care about?
This leads me to what I think writing theorists call a meta-problem and what I think is a meta-text: what I don’t write about and can’t is leading me to write something. Can I give a shape to the void left by certain cars and by so doing find out something positive?
I might find out.
