Tara kept turning around, trying to see it as long as she could.

Karl looked at her quizzically. He couldn’t fathom her interest.

The area was dotted with such places. He had seen them all his life.

He knew the story inside – cramped quarters, smoky cooking place, eked out living, yearning for something better…

He had run from it all!

He hadn’t seen the simple beauty, the rustic charm, the home!

Maybe he had exchanged the picture perfect for the perfect picture!

Now it was he who took another look.

The bend in the road hid it from sight.

  1. Dear Sabina,

    Well pictured. 😉 As Joni Mitchell sang in Big Yellow Taxi, “don’t it always seem to go that we don’t know what we’ve got til it’s gone.”




  2. The line ..” the picture perfect for the perfect picture” was a smart of way of telling the difference between his past and current life. Nicely done.


  3. This is great. Sometimes we need to see things through other people’s eyes to appreaciate what we have, or had.
