village life

does your road need a speed bump?
lay down half a palm tree trunk.
do your kids need a basketball hoop
nail together some sticks and plywood.

there was exactly one painted house.
blue as the crystal clear waters of the sea
there was exactly one school, one side
for girls and one side for boys? there were
lots of curious glances as we walked
through town.  there were also a lot
of smiling faces and greetings of "hello!"


  1. That speed bump is FANTASTIC. As is the blue hut!

    Amazing shot of the kitty cat too x

  2. ya, I think if I ever have a house of my own, I might just paint it that shade of blue :)

  3. I don't think the folks on Susan drive would be overly thrilled
