Traffic lights are deeply symbolic, when you think about it.
There’s a group of us, all standing by the edge of the road wanting to get to the other side. We would never have assembled as a group under any other circumstances, but we have been bought together and united in our common conviction that we, not being happy with the side of the road we are currently on, need desperately to get to the other side.
And the people already on the other side want to get to where we are.
And so we stand around waiting for the fabled green light.
It all seems deeply symbolic if you ask me.
