here to anythere: day 2

15 May

passing home

how many homes can a single heart hold?
we pass a well-worn exit and i think of one:

i remember in layers.

first airbrush tees, bungee chords, rod runs, and pancakes.
then mountain haunts, waterfalls, grass stains, and bare feet.

in quickly passing,
i curse the traffic,
but smile as i see the light.

for all this once-home’s strangeness, the truth is plain to see:
local means most where tourists roam free.

heading out of the crow’s nest for a week plus on the road –
snapshots recorded here.

    That “light” is still on in the window for you if you can ever wander off the road. Sure would love to see you sometime. Sending love!
