I have a hard time disposing of faded blooms, and apparently, so do the people in The Boathouse Restaurant up in the quaint and wonderful town of Salida. They hold a beauty all their own.

Salida, Colorado.

Quote of the day:  “In any man who dies, there dies with him his first snow and kiss and fight. Not people die, but worlds die in them.” – Yevgeny Yevtushenko

Daily gratitudes:
Writing poetry in my head
Bittersweet emotions
Battling depression
Nice salespeople
Old frozen lasagna that surprises me by tasting like my favorite frozen pizza from childhood
