who remembers this?
rolling around on turns
cigarette smoke-filled air
fighting over who could sit there
the door that swung open
back window down
best seat ever.

why, you might ask, is this large ceramic cat sitting in the water?
while visiting my friend’s house
someone in the family took a ceramics class
made several large animals
gifted them to his children
who gifted them to each other
left them at each others’ houses
used them in a variety of ways
including an outdoor towel holder

this one went to live in the water
looking back at the family on the shore
probably thinking the family was unusual
wondering their story
there is always a story.
“we are not interested in the unusual, but in the usual seen unusually.”
“the oldest, shortest words – ‘yes’ and ‘no’ – are those which require the most thought.”

“life is an improvisation. you have no idea what’s going to happen next
and you are mostly making things up as you go along.”
