Three Things Seen Only in the Midwest, and Three Seen Only in New York

1. Flower chains, and the time and peace to make them;

2. Meals of entirely one color tone (Note: This was a dinner I fixed for myself and does not accurately represent my mother's cooking);

3. Me wearing a Garth Brooks concert shirt while playing croquet.

1. The Brooklyn Bridge at sunset;

2. A Dixie Chicks concert at 8:30 in the morning;

3. A dyspeptic pigeon.
