End of the road (Drive day 241: Feb 25th, 2004)

Posted on Updated on


I want to carve initials into the sign marking the end of the Pan-American – my parents’ initials, not mine. We have finished the journey for them and I am composing the afterword for a book I know will come.


“I had no idea the end of the world could begin so gently and sweet smelling. The sky and the land relinquish their rigid boundaries and melt into liquid and cloudy horizons. ..


The colors whisper and blend into soothing half-tones and glows. The breeze stirs clover and salt and mussels and rain into something like a sigh. It is a place where even dreams can rest.”
