Pin It When I was back in Spokane for my brother’s wedding, my little sister and I visited the town I’d lived in when I was kid. Consequently, this is the same town I used as the setting for “Take the Long Way Home.”
“So, Teachinfourth, how’s the writing coming?
Back burner. Need I say more?
The main reason we had gone to Rockford was so that I could show my sister where we’d once lived…granted, it was before she was born…but our family lived there, nonetheless (by the way, the home is pictured on the front cover located HERE.)
As we drove around this small Washington town, I noticed this amazing little building which just seemed to call to me, so that I might take its picture. I was amazed at one set of doors which had been painted a few times, and had since cracked, faded, and peeled. As I raised my camera I was not disappointed, the ancient wood put on its finest colors for the shot.
This third photo was not actually taken in the early-morning fog—as one might suspect; but rather taken from inside a cloud.
I was staying up at my friends’ house and as I left their home early on the morning of my brother’s wedding, I was in the midst of a hazy wonderland. It opened up the spectral view from their mountaintop home where a simple bush became a heavenly silhouette.
