today I applied for a new passport… had printed off the documents ahead of time and was in and out of their office in about six minutes…

this is what they do to expired passports…

I had been dropped off, and after I was done, I walked back to the office in the lovely fall sunshine…

as I walked along I was remembering when I got my first passport…

it was about six months after George died and I had decided to take all the kids on a vacation so had to go and get a passport… I had never had one before…

it was odd preparing the paperwork and going through the process required to find individuals to act as references, having a photo taken and then taking in the paperwork… the kind of thing we would have done together

five years have passed since that day at the passport office… hard to believe that my beloved has been gone for five years, six months and twenty-seven days…

loved this view of the moon over the flag as I was waiting to cross the street…
