How do you get ideas?

I love living in New York City but sometimes — sometimes — I miss driving. I am one of the insufferable, the person who gets their best inspiration while driving. It needs to be a long ride, a half-hour plus, the sort where you start out someplace and end up somewhere completely different.

I try to walk around the city when I get the chance, but I take a lot of the same courses. I don’t think that helps. Plus walking requires entirely too much thought for thought to blossom.

People who take showers and get thoughts are people that I envy. The shower does nothing for me. I wonder where inspiration can come from there days when I don’t have a car?
