dear ann arbor family –
see you in the fall
there will be bands & dancing as we reunite eventually.
thank you, roos roost coffee.
i really appreciate you
for filling us with coffee and optimism.
“joy weathers any storm: happiness rides the waves.”
old and rusted
i wonder about the day
when the child
left the bike here one last time
never to enter that tiny house again. .
“what do we leave behind when cross each frontier?
each moment seems split in two:
melancholy for what was left behind
and the excitement of entering a new land.”
back to school today
back to the kinder
who are not limited by conventions
and are open to the future.
and here we go, marching straight into the corn.
“the future is an ever-shifting maze of possibilities until it becomes the present.”
at nixon farms, dexter, mi, usa – october 2019
yes, yes you are.
and for that, we are lucky.
“children are one third of our population and all of our future.”
an unbroken tiny egg found amidst my vine
“the present was an egg laid by the past that had the future inside its shell.”

in warmer days of not so long ago, kinders w and n, try to figure out how to blend the past with the present and the future.
Study the past, if you would divine the future. Confucius
