wordpictures

favorite pictures I carry in my mind to warm my hands over on cold days....Megan , my girl Scout since kindegarten,saying"my life would be so different if I didn't know you"while my nephew played guitar & the crickets tried tooutdo him

 

my lanky,perpetually snotty Caitlin, leaning on me. Some people have marks on doorjams to tell how tall their kids are. I keep track of Caitlin's growth by the snot marks on my clothes.

 

purple wildflowers like exclamation points in the woods

 

sleeping with the smell of a fire, waking with burn holes in my shirt (I was cold!)

 

I am so lucky in this life....
