Peacetown

A dream.

I was looking for my exit, driving down the expressway. I saw the sign: Peace, and took it. I drove around, to wherever I was supposed to be going. I walked into a historical museum of some sort and asked the man at the front desk if this was the best way to learn about the town of Peace. I am just visiting. And I'd also need a good recommendation for a nice place to eat downtown. I specifically remember saying "money is no object."

Now, I can still recall this dream from last week quite vividly, right down to my arm hairs and the name on the sign.

On our walk the next morning, we passed a hacky-sack type ball that had been left on someone's driveway. I noticed it because it was in "Dora" colors and I assumed it would have a picture of Dora and Boots on it and Ivy would surely take notice but as we got closer I saw that it just had writing.

I read slowly as we strolled and each letter came into focus. It said P-E-A-C-E.


Today I link up... just write.

  2. "money is no object" I always thought of it as I-have-plenty-of-money-so-spare-no-expense, but if you think about it, it really says money's not important. It's not an object. Thanks for making me think this morning.

  7. May peace be with you always figuratively and literally.

    This was simple, elegant, and I ate every single word up like the a la mode on my favorite peach pie.

  9. This freaked me out a bit because I saw a ball like that at the end of someone's driveway while I was running in our neighborhood on Sunday. I did not stop to see what it had on it though. Now I wonder...

  10. I love that the hacky sack held a message for you, but that you were sure it was something for your daughter. Because this is motherhood. We always have them in mind, and we startle when it doesn't really have much to do with them, at all.
