Jessie, Jess! How? I thought you were still in Texas?
I am. Well, I’m still there that is. I’m only back for a few days, one of Charlie’s college friends is getting married. Our plane touched down maybe an hour ago, and knowing you’re still a creature of habit, I knew right where to find you.
Sure, the memories But, the smell, the taste, the touch, All still left to make believe I miss… The very start Opening characters, scene one Greener grass, the bluest skies, salty ocean That street light at night where I would measure my shadow to the tip of the moon Those flaked fences, white A particular damp night sky that I loved and haven’t smelt in a long, long time Tipped-toed curbs, run past the shop Yes, my eyes could go blind and I would still make it anyway Follow the path by memory alone…to my home Grab a bunch of those crazy flowers along the way But now, I can only recount because tomorrow had to come and now strangers walk about like I was never even there
Seriously! Four days? It really took them…never mind. They’re idiots. Remember, they’re all incompetent fools. One brutal headache after the other, I waited. All that time waiting around to see my glorious work, displayed for the fine people of Jamestown and the story gets barely ninety seconds of airtime. They didn’t even show the good parts, well…his parts.
Need your help with something. I’ve been brainstorming a few new ideas regarding my blog lately. Nothing too dramatic, just a few simple tweaks to make the flow of my page work better. I want to allow new followers a chance to easily access some of my more focused categories. I’m even considering cutting a few and devoting my time to what seems to be the good stuff. And, that’s based on feedback and commented interest.
Every day…I write you a love letter. No pen, no paper, just what’s inside my heart. I know they never reach you. But, right now I’m OK with that. Because, no matter how many words I’ve written, or how many more I’ll write. My heart will never close what was, what is…what will forever be, the best chapters of my life.
