In Your Eyes

I saw it In your eyes. When words fail to speak goodbyes. When long passages await Our muffled cries. When roads traveled less. Must pass us by. On other sides. That hide goodbyes. And then it’s time For fortune’s clock arrived. Of borrowed time. And time to let the friendships die And be reawakened In another time. Where wounds and scrapes Become expired, priceless Wine. The anguish of goodbyes. Of that last meal to dine. When hearts doth crack and Tears drench tired eyes. The anguish of the ended miles. […]

It was the most difficult thing I had done since I had moved to New Jersey–far worse than anything I had experienced during the campaign.

But it wasn’t enough, and I had to stop midway. I was frustrated, sweaty, and in need of a nice, soothing glass of kombucha. “Are you finished putting that crib together?” Emma asked. […]

Death in a Garden vs. Death in a Parking Lot

On Saturday, we ran our usual errands. The kids stayed in the truck with my dude while I ran into the mill for chicken feed.

It was hot out, so the cat had brought the bird inside to feast on…but first she wanted to torment it. The bird was injured and not capable of flying, so the cat dropped it onto the floor and batted it around a bit as cats do. […]
