so, i actually cried while watching “the smurfs”
luckily there was some magic involved
that turned things around
as the universe tends to do
in its own strange way
with no explanation
and all at once
everything was right with world again.

this is where it all began
my lifelong love and fascination
with the spy business
in this just-leaked satellite photo from the early 60’s
i was on assignment
my cover was
as a seven year old girl
posing casually out front
after a long day spent at the office
i feel quite sure no one suspected.

today we met the farmers
they got down low
told us everything
they showed us how to plant our own food
so that we could eat it later
they answered all of our questions
and told us
how the food would taste better
because we know the farmers now.
“know you food, know your farmers, and know your kitchen.”
spent a late afternoon
browsing through this collection of
used books of all sorts
went home with unexpected treasures
and things to look forward to
kind of like woodstock
the mud, tie dye, or music
just lots of good words.

another beautiful day for a peaceful walk in ann arbor
