lone wild flower

among the overgrown
autumn grass-
reading again
an old letter

perfectly

mere words vanish

a lost letter
On our way to yet another Saturday track meet. Same as the last one, it's another hour north of home. The shortest distance to this one, though, sends us up H59. I haven't gone this way for at least fifteen years.
Before I540 was finished, this was the easiest way to anything north. I always enjoyed the drive and the scenery. Not this time.
One curve after another on the two lane road with the speed limit of 55mph. Once we get farther north, we run into line after line of orange barrels, making it even more difficult.
After the meet I'm going to take the extra time to go east until I run into I540 south. I have no desire to go back home on this road.

a lost letter
found in a wooden box-
faded love

These aren't the best photos, but this is the final proof of my book. I got it yesterday. I'm going to go over it with a red pen and send it back. It will then be another 4 weeks or so and it will be out!!

my past is lost~

.

After we were married 18 years ago, we moved into a "married couple apartment" at the University of Arkansas. We lived there two years while I finished law school.

A friend of mine that lives in Fayetteville e-mailed me this photo today. Our apartment has been wiped out. I don't know what will be built there.
