Title: Direction

Give me a sign. Some sort of signal. Iím lost and need your guidance. Shall we skip up north? Densely populated trees, pine, evergreen, sprinkled on mountainsides, dusted with snow. Or shall we journey south? Red and orange and brown and yellow clay standing firm in the heat, my tongue panting looking for water. Or shall we venture west? Drive along Highway 1, through beach towns, and shovel greasy al pastor tacos with pineapple into our mouths, while listening to the crash of the ocean on top of the hood of our car. Or shall we slip away to the east? Enjoy a crab boil by the seaside, breaking open shells, and smelling of seafood everywhere. Or shall we simply stay here? Enjoy the comforts of home, sipping a cup of coffee, and watching as the lake changes shape.
