  1. The photo is a great companion for your words. Sometimes we do catch glimpses of others and it prompts us to wonder about their story… but rather than pry with questions, we just wonder…


  2. This seems infused with so much sadness. I love the last line, “I can not know, can not ask.” Parsing that becomes a thought exercise in itself. It’s such an intriguing piece. I wish there were more than 42 words of it.


I'm excited to hear from you. Comment here! I won't let anyone bite you.
