not ‘my’ cheetos truck, but at least you can get a feel for it
driving home from school
behind a giant truck load o’ cheetos
and i thought ‘oh, man..’
couldn’t help but daydream
about what would happen
if the back doors blew open
and my favorite flamin’ hot cheetos
and i had to take home a car load of bags
just to help clean up the mess
and it might make me very happy at the same time.
who wouldn’t consider this, i ask you?
“i was trying to daydream, but my mind kept wandering.”
one of my favorite people with a statement that still applies 60 years later
· “no moral, no message, no prophetic tract, just a simple statement of fact.
for civilization to survive, the human race has to remain civilized.”

checked up on mother goose’s egg yesterday and it was totally alone
checked today and it was off the rock
sitting broken under water
sad it didn’t survive
life can be so fragile.
“probably one of the most private things in the world is an egg until it is broken.”
-M. F. K. Fisher
it has been one year
since the global pandemic coronavirus began to shut much of our nation down
so much loss and so many sacrifices and lessons learned
everyone waiting for a return to fully living life
with hope on the horizon.
“there are 31,536,000 seconds in a year. i am counting down every second.”

it’s his big day, and one of my favorite fun holidays
no matter what he predicts
about the coming of spring
(*not sure about his accuracy)
i love his spirit.
*the national climatic data center compared U.S. national temperatures from 1988 to 2012 to determine the accuracy of Phil’s predictions, and he’s only been proven correct 39% of the time — significantly worse than chance.
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.
“like all great travelers, i have seen more than i remember, and remember more than i have seen.”

“the cyclone ends. the sun returns; the lofty coconut trees lift up their plumes again;
man does likewise. the great anguish is over; joy has returned; the sea smiles like a child.”
