It was a surprise in our conservatively styled town when this house turned up a bright blue.
I had noticed that an older lady lives here, so that made the intense shade even more unanticipated. Even the garage makes a statement.
Upon closer examination I saw a familiar looking car. It reminded me of a favorite picture book, The Old Woman Who Named Things by Cynthia Rylant.
Now I am filled with wonder. What other similarities are there? Most importantly, does my neighbor need a friend?
This house is on my route when I walk into town. Maybe someday I’ll stop in and pay a visit.
