This is Joe and Sadie. I met them yesterday (separately) while assembling Ennui: Selections from The White Dress Series. I meet strangers every day, especially when I’m out and about on my bike. I met a 67-year-old man this week who was picking pecans on the side of the road. He said he’s a country boy, and that folks should not cut down trees that bear fruit. I agree. I also think getting out of the car bears fruit. As in new friends, who used to be strangers. For more about strangers, see Stranger Things Happen.
