A marvelous time in east Chicago took her mind off the Seattle rain.
She strolled through the park in her new red dress she bought on the Ross clearance rack.
She divorced her husband and is excited to be alone.
To walk alone.
To talk alone.
To drink wine…alone.
To take back her life alone.
To breathe in the east coast sky with a breath of new life alone.
A lonely man with a timid smile approached her.
So much for being alone.
