Ditch Day

 Because sometimes, 
even in the middle of the week,
you need to remember who you are 
away from work;
away from the drama of mean girls and oblivious bosses.

you need a mini road trip -
if only for a day.
 Yes, you've read about my friends farm before
but it's been years since I visited. 

Life threatening illnesses
and a sad, bitter divorce 
have happened in the meantime.
 It's powerful to see how both objects and relationships 
can go from charmingly shabby chic
to decaying
in what feels like the blink of an eye.
A day to remember that everyone is doing the best they can
under whatever circumstances they're given.

It was a gorgeous day;
it was a sad day.

Another day in all our lives.
