Holiday Migrations

thanksgiving eve day

the gatherings begin now

students scatter to

far flung parents’ homes

neighbors’ drives spill onto streets

christmas lights appear


Driving to the store today for last minute supplies for Mom, I notice that my young downstairs neighbors (students both) are gone.  There are a lot of students living in my neighborhood.  Other neighbors driveways are populated with out-of-state plates.

I’ll head out tonight for Mom’s in Hoover, 15 minutes down I 65, to help her and my sister with food prep for tomorrow.
