Feel welcome. Laugh with friends. Exchange smiles. See threads that make tapestry. Find words, fit them on page.

Red mistakes.

Listen. Jot notes, hand cramps. Thoughts flow too slow. Visit office. Absent. Visit again. Busy. Dial number. Wait by phone. No answer. Write email. Wait by computer. No reply. Point camera. Battery dry. Camera dies. Type draft. Fingers cease tapping. Half blank page.


Leave work. Enter wilderness. Pick sprigs of ponderosa pine. Scent from broken end energizes. Cerulean sky. Rust colored sandstone. Lay curled beneath juniper. Wind sounds like gentle ocean waves, brushes past. Sun's heat, peaceful feeling, sleep.

Welcome tomorrow.
