I Hope You Find What You’re Looking For

He Arrived In A Hollowed-Out Studebaker Lark

City Bus, Country Bus

In a bus, bumping elbows with messy humanity, I create memories that will bolster me for life. Our lives, as the author of Job reminds us, are short and full of trouble. The best we can do is connect, share a smile over this gift of existence.
