Untouchable by Jacob Bellens

I usually don’t drive. I prefer to get around through a combination of public transport and taxis to avoid driving in traffic.

But I took my wife’s car out for a leisurely drive yesterday morning, a Saturday before most people had woken up and while the roads were still empty.

I turned on the radio, and this song came on. I later searched and found that it’s Untouchable by Jacob Bellens.

For me, that Saturday morning, it perfectly captured the simultaneous meaning and lack of meaning of it all, our attempts to understand and improve the world despite its inherent unknowables and uncertainties, and the beauty of the resulting journey.

So I turned off the radio, found the song on my smartphone, placed it on repeat, and continued driving.
