    Shiela,

    I think this is absolutely lovely the way you've used 'thoughts' with 'unspool'

    There is something magical about a road trip. The driver must keep her eyes on the road, but the thoughts keep unspooling, like that line. With or without passengers to talk to. I enjoyed this.

    Thank you, Alison. Glad it resonated with your experience.
