Why am I writing in the left-hand lane?

I’m not left-handed.

In the USA, where I was born and where I live now, drivers typically move into the left-hand lane to pass other vehicles. The left-hand lane is known as the “fast lane.”

That’s exactly where I want to be when I write–in the fast lane.

Also, I’m an ardent Anglophile who has visited the UK often, and upon two separate occasions, actually lived there. I attended an English boarding school in London as a teen. Although I have never driven in London, I vividly remember “riding in the left-hand lane.”

Thanks for finding me here in the left-hand lane! I hope you’ll enjoy the journey. Now hang on tight…here we go!
