reverb 11: community: beyond the city limit signs


i couldn't see the boots for the trees.  
and there were lots of them,
strung along the fence line right there to my left as i stood looking up the road.


the ever-wonderful michael pointed them out
and it took more than one look before i saw them.

a community i love.

online and in real life,
we're all a part of a multitude of communities.
tell us about one that moves you.

i am a texan.
a small town east texas girl
who moves through the woods
and along the backroads
and knows the sky.
if i have to open a gate to get to where you live,
so much the better.
