new year

Noted In Passing

Walking up Lakeside Street, I noticed a bumpersticker that said "Where have all the hippies gone?" in avocado green puffy letters, with flowers. Long time passing, long time gone, sang the earworm. They're putting ironic bumperstickers on their minivans, thought I to myself, just look around you, no one's on the street today, but they're walking in the wind and rain with their hair blowing in their eyes and a pink umbrella. So my brain was right in gear with my time and place as I proceeded on down the road. Collapse )
