Onward and Yes

Sorry, they said.  We're busy.

Too bad, they said.  Next time.

Montpelier Mansion

Disappointment? Only momentarily.

No matter how many nos come your way

There are at least as many yeses.

Perhaps the red-winged blackbirds

and the local movie crew

or the quaint Annapolis storefront

will say yes

And gratitude will spring

from unexpected places

From the Realm of Delightful Non-Sequiturs.

Onward, my friend -

and thankfully so -

to your next adventure!

Doorways to History.
