This Valley Stinks

This Valley Stinks. The previous post was my weekly column for the Wilson County News, which is the best weekly newspaper in Texas. The column was about the college kids who are taking the semester off to come down and help re-build Louisiana – such a good idea….. I don’t know that any students are actually doing this, but they should.

Now I am writing this at Althea’s in Mount Vernon, which has some of everything – like green tea, or beer or wine if you want it. This is Casey’s place. There is no Althea, but it was a song named by the Grateful Dead. Casey is a very nice woman – she brought me an extra cup of green tea and made me feel at home.

Landscaping work was all right today, although I don’t give a shit one way or another about the beauty of the Skagit Valley. I have been living in my car and couch surfing for the past six months, and I think this Valley stinks. Been here since 1970, on and off, but it’s not my home anymore and that hurts my feelings and makes me feel pretty sad. All I want to do now is leave this place and go somewhere where nobody knows me, so I can restore my spirit.
