Elks Lodge, Ajo, Arizona
Wooden hummingbirds mounted on a wall, Ajo, Arizona
A mural in Artists Alley, Ajo, Arizona
Door on an abandoned building, Ajo, Arizona
Behind the old battered blue door
There’s emptiness, and nothing more.
Not even a mouse,
A cricket or louse
Is hiding behind the blue door.

Detail from a mural in Artists Alley, Ajo, Arizona
Detail from a world map in my Arizona classroom
Where will you go in this wide world,
And what do you hope to see?
Where will your passport next be stamped?
How do you know it will be?
Dreaming of places far away
Is how the best journeys start.
Unleash your dreams and let them roam,
And follow them with your heart!
