"Who you trying to kid? You think I was born yesterday? Listen to me! You do seem happy as a clam in the mud at full tide, but I did not just fall off the proverbial turnip truck to fall again for some Cheshire cat wanting to paint the town red on cloud nine." Then after the longest pregnant pause, "That's right beautiful is as beautiful does! And any fool, like a piece of ice on a hot stove must ride on its own melting. So, you must needs best get in here presently, and clean this kitchen if you intend to think comfortably about having your next meal in tandem with me this evening!"
"A Rose by any other name would smell as sweet"-- adage from Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare
Nov. 2019, swallowed by the big sky country overlapping with the great Atlantic at Wrightsville Beach, Maureen stands in the sand, barefoot, and bemused in her deserted paradise. "Here we must come again!"
Casually strolling the Atlantic coast, Maureen's November thoughts drift with the tumbling breakers, one early evening on the 7th day of year 2019.
