i should have done the dishes.
i should have changed the kitty litter.
i should have put some laundry in the machine.
i should have swept the tumbleweeds of cat fur
out of the corners of the living room.
but the sun was shining.
and the car was home.
and the gas tank was full.
i went looking for pretty light
and abandoned boats
and dirt roads...
and now my heart feels
satisfied and content
(but also can't wait to go again!)
