e s c a p e

railroad crossing

lately
i have been
wanting to escape.

bury
my head in
a book
and
forget about
stress,
work,
and
what i
s h o u l d
be doing
and
l o s e
myself
in someone
else's world.

get
in a car
with grub
and drive
to
somewhere
i have
never been.
find old
abandoned
railroad
towns...

wineries
tucked away
among
cattle
and sheep farms.


we leave
the city
with no
real destination
in mind...
pack a lunch,
a camera
or two
and end up
where
we end up.
we leave everything
behind
at least
for
the day.

we play
graveyard
along
the way.
1 point
for spotting cows
2 points
for spotting sheep
3 points
for spotting llamas
and
spotting
a graveyard
makes all
your opponents
lose their points.

grub won.

how do you
escape?

have
a lovely
weekend.

This looks like a wonderful escape. I'd love to drive off without a real plan and end up in such a place. I'll be making something similar happen soon. Thanks.
