    wildfires to wildflowers 

    my mom says God can fix everything, just be patient

    there were very few things she shoved down my throat

    very calm, trusting, freedom-loving woman.

    she didnt bother me about church and for the rest of my years i loved the good book

    she didn’t bother me about literature and politics and music, and i love those too

    she didnt tell me i watched too much tv or wrote too much

    she encouraged me in whatever i loved, and i thank her for that.

    and any time i see beautiful flowers i think of her.

    this weekend when amber and i drove through malibu and thousand oaks (pictured)

    and we saw all the wildflowers, i wanted to fly my mom out here to see them with her

    because they’re poppin right now, big time.
