when i was a freshman in college, by best friend had a tumble weed in her dorm room. an old boyfriend had just relocated to wyoming and mailed it to her as a present. when we moved out of the dorms in may, we set it free in the arboretum. this reminds me of that, makes me smile.
I've never seen a tumbleweed in real life, they are very romantic to me.-V
that reference made me laugh so much. i love that movie.
It's an American beauty sort of thing, if you know what I mean.
living in west texas in the mid-seventies, there were still tumbleweeds that blew in with the spring winds. they'd pile up under trucks and cars and in backyards. they were a beautiful nuisance - by that i mean i didn't see the beauty until now; they were a nuisance back then. happy thanksgiving to you et.al.
TUMBLEWEEDi read about thosemotorcycle diariesand then how to repair them(there was zen in all that -and maybe a little xenophobia too).i was scaredand you pulled meoutmade me think i wassome kind of soldier in all thisthe money that flowed inmade me feel less effectiveas a soldier; more likea mercenary -in it for onlywhat i could bleed outfor you.don't get me wrongi reaped part of the rewardbut i'm taking my cut backto the landthat created me -rolling on -to the exitlane in the west texasdust.-jim hill (11-25-09)
