I did some dark driving tonight, from Port Ludlow
to Seattle, unlit roads and unfamiliar curves,
one cup of strong black tea not quite enough
to keep me longing for sleep and the comfort
of blankets. The interminable wait for the ferry.
I could not do this with any regularity.

  1. But, oh, how I did appreciate your visit, sharing dinner and conversation, even a bit of book discussion. Thanks for making the journey to the western hinterlands, T. Glad you safely made it home to city lights, your warm bed, and snugly tucked in blankets.
