mayberry. . .
along the way, canon 20d
we have a little place we drive to once a week.
the ride is half the fun, curving roads throughout
the cornfields, pass cows, and pigs, and tractors...
its just a little restaurant in a small boondock town,
filled with regulars, and folks who still pray before their meals.
beautiful elders who order the exact same thing
(cottage cheese instead of fries)
and prefer to sit by the window in a booth.
.....and dining there somehow brings us to a more simple mindset.
away from the pressure of financial success, and the need for pretty
home decor, and the flat stomach , and the 'look how talented my child is',
and all the other weight of social viruses.
its a feeling i treasure.
i am the girl who longs for an andy griffith way of things.
sometimes i wonder if i am the only
chick who desires this.
i guess it doesnt matter.
because he gets me and he gets it,
and we only have to drive a half hour to our own
little mayberry escape.
