i walked down the newly paved road and
soooooo wanted to pull out my sidewalk chalk
and decorate all that solid blackness......
joked with the construction guys about it.
'that's the artist in you coming out,' one of
them said. yeah....
'are you tickled?' i asked them.
they've been tryin forever to get this road
they're not done. got a long ways to go, i think.
they've become part of the neighborhood.
as i walked away i thought how quiet it would
be when they're all gone again.
and i realized i'd miss them.
now how in the world did that happen????
