In the knee-high grass of Eastern Montana, Independence is a luxury few can afford – John McDonough

You can’t help feeling the feeling that the sky is a clean sheet of wrapping paper

The universe beyond having been carefully attended to

Picked up from layaway, tied up with a bow, and placed in front of you

Open it
