The smell of hot pavement is its own very particular vehicle in service of memory lane. Always accompanied by a companion scent - curry perhaps, car freshener, the oil you've used to adjust the bearings on a skateboard? The open road before us and the sun beating down, does this scent, this space precede the coming of holy, Kingdom of God in the here and now? Can something as simple really be holy ground?
