.:  a conversation about a mountain with a little girl

the little girl was running in a circle. she asks, "are you the janitor?"

i say yes.

"why?"

"to pay bills."

"why?"

"because i'm not ready to climb mountains"

and i open the roof access door and show her mt. garfield - looming over the valley, over the river, the high school, and us: snow cloud shrouded, ten thousand unborn clay pots.

"scary," she says. i nod.

"...better than vacuuming!" she squeals trike wheel.

not so different.

she goes back to spinning.
