Todd’s Metamorphosis

The Todd;s beautiful metamorphose.
The life is like a big highway. We, as cars, go forward and see different things, explore something. But as we live, we take different turns and exits from the highway. Every exit has its own people, things we would never see in any other exit. Every turn is different and its very important to choose the right one, where one can explore the things he wants.

Todd is painfully shy and terrified that what he might say is insignificant and meaningless.
