Owl Works - The Scribblings of M.T. Bass

MTB150601 - Lodging Cover - 180x288

Lodging — bending of the stalk of a plant (stalk lodging) or the entire plant (root lodging).

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

“Grandma… Grandma! Can she even hear me?”

“She comes and goes. Some days are better than others.”

“What is she looking at out there?”

“I don’t know.”


Of course, I could hear them. But sometimes it is easier to pretend not to. How do you tell your family — your children and your children’s children that their lives are — or maybe, were unintended. That they might never have been.

I don’t know if “unintended” is the right word. Accidental? Like getting shot with a ricocheted bullet.

I loved Bill. I did. Captain Billy — the pilot of my soul. We had a good life and we were happy. But, he wasn’t the one. He was the one who came back, but he wasn’t the one.
