In ’74
I had a date here with my
future ex-boyfriend.

A crappy hotel
but at least it offered this
well-lighted hallway.

An unpaved road brought
me here, to an abandoned
church with some dead trees.

This old tub has seen
many generations of
flowers come and go.

Books! I have books!

I used to do a book every year, sort of as a recap of stuff I’d posted on the blog. But then I got out of the habit, and it’s been a couple of years since I’ve made the effort.

The other day, my cousin mentioned in a Facebook comment that she’d really like to see a book of photos from Lubbock; she said photos from Lubbock made her “feel like home is not so far.” Challenge accepted! It’s called Lubbock: the prevailing themes, and features images from my main blog, One Day | One Image.

And, then, while I was at it, I did a small book of haiku that I’ve posted on this blog. This book is called 17 (haiku).

Both books are now available. They’d make really good gifts, if you catch my drift…

Is cloud rotating?
Is there a tornado? Is
there time for photo?

My apologies.

Union Station in
Denver still has trains, also
has a mercantile.

I don’t understand
these marks, but trust someone
will know what they mean.
