Blur and Focus

Luray, Virginia


Smudged branches, fences cutting into greenscape, and a cardinal red barn with crisp white windows. It all flies past the passenger window. I like the mix of blur and focus. 

Surgery is tomorrow morning. I am trying to hold fast to the moments of clarity and calmness that flicker past; trying to harness my eagerness to end this liminal state, while anxiety and fear mingle and muddy themselves in my gut.

Blur and focus: looking in and looking out.
