Fall, 2017



The lack of pretense

A piqued curiosity

Reading something that makes the world more wondrous

Sandy shorelines, riverside trails

Lightning over a field of sunflowers

The drone of a distant train

Uncommonly beautiful sunsets

Uncommonly beautiful sunrises

The scent of a tattered blanket

Music in the middle of the night

Dinner with the right kind of smile

The pull to places no one else sees

Cutting a rose, feeling the sting of its thorns

Meeting new people who are complex, deep, exposed

Feeling like I belong with words

The truth in a dog’s eyes

Licking a spoon

The need to surrender.
