I really like the perforated vinyl I had installed on the Rolling Steel Tent’s rear windows all these years ago. It blocks some of the sunlight and (under the right conditions) provides privacy.
But when it rains (like today) water is trapped in all the little holes, turning the view into a blur. That’s not helpful when I’m driving.
Up close, though, each dot of trapped water acts like a lens. It’s sort of like looking through and insect eye, I suppose, but without the proper neurological connections to make sense of the bigger picture. There’s a metaphor for life in there somewhere.
