These photos were taken at the end of August. I'd stopped at a service station next to an interstate exit, and while pumping gas I noticed how beautiful the sky was. This sky is Ohio. Kentucky shares it but without the contrasting gray on days like today.
Ohio, where check-out time in this motel is noon; where Laramie is so exhausted from helping me drive last night that she's still in bed; where the dog in the adjoining room has been barking without ceasing for 45 minutes, in between scratching on the door; and where if I'd left the motel half an hour ago I'd already be talking to my mother.
