2007 [ Foreclosure | Meaning ]


I walk away
from                            my home.


The “Great Recession”
hasn’t started.
Financial difficulties
are coalescing.

Dad would know
what to do.

I call, inform Mom.
What does this mean?
Aghast: Mom, what
do you mean by that?

I’m nearly 50;
it means
I’m alone,
can’t ask
my family
for help.

It’s too late.

  1. Heavy! So sad that many people can identify with this. Such a reality. Maybe if you have time you can show me how to make my blog page so nice! 🙂 You always do such good work!

  2. This is so moving and spare.
