How do you feel, how have you felt, getting home from trips, 

,

adventures, of all kinds in your life?

.

The feelings are often complex and multi-layered… 

.

how you place them in your tanka?

.


ride to cousins farm
.
.
not out of city limits
.
.
are we there yet ?
.
.
dad says a long way yet
.
.
Can we have a snack then ?
.
.
.
Note
.
Even for the hour long ride,
.
we HAD to have snacks in the car.
.
We would not be out of the city limits
.
of the suburbs of Milwaukee, WI, USA
.
(we lived in West Allis)
.
before the questions started
.
from my brother and me
.
