Smoldering Ember

"First time away in far too long and all we could see was long strings of tail lights for hours. Left in a hurry. Unprepared. Obligatory upside-down dog in tow. Dinner time and we had not even arrived. Hungry, wishing we were lost (it would have felt better). At least in this car we could go a long way to nowhere on less gas.

She is closer than you think.
"At last, we reached the entrance to the secret passage. A sparkle appeared in their eyes. Oppressive heat had given way to cool clean ocean air. Had we arrived or was this just a dream?

"Maybe both ... two but not two."

"Looking for the end? You might be here a while. A very long while."
