I’m no longer surprised by the things that I see on the side of the road. These are both the close up view I get while running as well as the things that stand out as I speed past on the highway. But sometimes something just stands out as being so incongruous with the normal of detritus that want to know more. I write the story in my head of how it got there. Today it was an inflatable pink flamingo ring to keep a kid floating in the pool.
