I found these in the parking lot of Ollie’s Bargain Outlet on North Parkway.
I imagine Thea, a three year old, gripping with her thimble sized thumb, a pack of magnetic letters. Her mother, thirty, soothing her teething brother, Timothy. Then they drive home, the myth and rhythm of a lighthearted family. Well clothed, healthy and wealthy traveling Rt. 45 South, a potholed path, thinking of nothing but the warmth of their hearth and feeling thankful.
