Heading back from the airport today, on the opposite side of the motorway, a French military lorry had blown a tyre in spectacular fashion. There was debris from the tyre spread all over both lanes. It had clearly only just happened - the soldiers were running around waving reflective vests, cars were braking and swerving to try to avoid the debris - enormous shredded lumps of black rubber and wire, like crows.

It strikes me that we all roll along, then a sudden, arbitrary thing, can change everything.
