The trees look good when you know how to navigate.
This shitty apartment looks good when it's crowded at night.
The beach looked good this morning when we came across this. (I guess we found it, dog!)
Winter looks good when viewed from above.
When I turned 25 Will gave me a lantern full of river glass from the Watauga Gorge in North Carolina. A few weeks later I ran the Watauga Gorge, following a few feet behind him, copying his moves paddle stroke by paddle stroke. It was a triumph but something made us fight about it later. It wasn't long till it was over and I drove out of the south for good. Years past and he spent them on rivers around the world and it seemed like we'd never speak again. But I've collected sea glass for him ever since. I keep it in a jar in my closet.
We found all this this morning, the dog and I, enough to top off the jar. Good thing, because Will is coming to town in just a few days. The boy I met in the grand canyon in the depths of winter, five long years ago. And boy is he good looking.
