Search of the Changeling

Search, originally uploaded by Shirley Buxton.

Two weeks ago we picked up Chloe in Yuma…tomorrow, again in Yuma, we will return her to her parents, Andrew and Shawnna. It’s been delightful having her, but we actually need a few more days to do everything we want…such as going for lunch by ferry to the California side of the lake.

One last fling today: Our neighbor Melody went to Las Vegas yesterday to pick up her 12-year-old granddaughter…today we’re all going to Keepers of the Wild Nature Park in Valentine, Arizona.

Chloe has developed into a beautiful young lady. She is fourteen–a young fourteen–a changeling, who is at once a child…and then again, a woman.

Demure by you.
