the day we saw the pines

Aunt Marilyn's laugh is the best.


Hey, you. Good morning.
How ‘bout a ride?
A shower?
A nail clipping?
How ‘bout we go real slow?
See some cows?
Listen to some Christmas music?

How ‘bout taking your old seat?
What if
This
is our new adventure?
It’s been a while. Right?
Just today. We’ll see tomorrow at that time.



You remember that time we heard what we heard?
That everybody we meet is somehow a mirror of us.
And every question already has an answer attached.

That’s just crazy.
Don’t you think?






Today I am grateful for the look in her eyes when I said, “How ‘bout a ride?”





The question of the day comes from caller number one.

Caller, go ahead.

Will you never learn?

Learn what?

That you keep repeating yourself.


Oh, yeah. For sure. I know that. Does it look so bad? What if today was a love story? Did you need to see it? I did.
