November 18: Kansas

Kansas, you know, is staring into the middle distance.

Kansas is the purgatory before the mountains, the labor before the birth.

Kansas endures.

Kansas is a state park in the wind, cooking dinner over a fire in a dutch oven.

Kansas is a sunset all the way around us.
 Kansas is a little bit more than it seems.


  1. Those last two lines - perfect.
    Also - the photo of the two girls. Gorgeous - and they're so little there!

  2. I'd love to hear what Kim thinks of Kansas.

  3. I've never been to Kansas and likely never will go there. For me, it's that opening of the Wizard of Oz where dear little Toto is being actively transported to meet his maker.

  4. Kansas is on my bucket list only because I want to see all states before I die.
