They asked me what I missed about Bloomington, Illinois,

by Candace Armstrong

Whole Foods!
a bit pricey
but very tasty

McLean County Master Gardeners
cultivating all green things
lovers of the life they bring

The Bookies! book club
met monthly for twelve years' time
good reads, good friends and wine

An old farmhouse on a city lot
graced by more gardens every year
remodeled, cared for as something dear

But most of all,

A noble, true-hearted border collie
Frisbee player extraordinaire
owner of love and loyalty rare

Life ambles away, so we know
and past memories glow
as on and on we go
