A bunch of clocks that are all drawn together

“In your life there are a few places, or maybe only the one place,where something happened, and then there are all the other places.”

Alice Munro, Runaway



A person sitting on the ground in front of water.

It may surprise you.

Maybe not the longing in the first lover’s eyes,

Or a tiny hand clasping yours,

Or even the ragged last breath of a cherished one.

No, maybe just

the puff of dandelion seeds floating on the morning air.

  1. Just ordered the book Runaway. It won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013! Thank you for introducing me to Alice Munro. I enjoy your blog so much. I always learn something new. Thank you.
