away from the traveling show

A number of things stood out today that I usually miss in the routine of days.

·  A handwritten letter expressed friendship.
·  There was a dead snake in the middle of the road. I saw it just after noticing a white hair on my forearm.
·  The strength of a wind blown American flag snapped crisply from high atop the pole.
·  Leaning up against a roadside stand was a weathered plywood painted sign. The message read: Tomatoes 3 for $1.
·  A passing stranger offered me a good morning greeting. I smiled and returned the sentiment.

    Good lord man, you have passed through a time portal into the past! I do miss handwritten letters.
