shared dreams …bagdad, arizona

August 7, 2015


I ate lunch with a stranger.  She told me she worked as a maintenance director at a copper mine. Lived in Florida for 10 years until she moved out west leaving an x husband behind with a dear john letter.  She told me she started in that small town with just forty acres – dreamed of 60 acres and she said now I dream of 400 acres.  I laughed and I told her we dream of moving back out west. Of maybe someday owning one of those tiny houses. You know, those tiny houses with a small foot print, two stories and a loft …. she looked at me shrugged and said, “… then you can put it out back in my 400 acres”. We laughed out loud. We had never met each other before. We ate lunch with our dreams … and shared our dreams to make them happen. And yes L. I still remember your name.     – bagdad arizona
