photo-4My keys are dwindling. I now have more key rings than keys. No more house keys, parking meter key, safe deposit box, office, or writing studio keys.

I’m no longer the keeper of the keys, the one with access and codes. I’m in charge of nothing at all.

What I have is a Jeep key and keys to two friends’ houses.

Which, really, is probably just as it should be.

One responsibility after another is gone, key by key. Friends’ keys, by contrast signify welcome and trust. Those I have.

My first book, Upside Down Kingdom, is available on Amazon. I’ll sign it for you.
