I'm ensconced with my laptop in a cafe on W&L's campus,
trying hard not to appear too clearly out of place among the coeds;
(I'm aiming for the professorial look)
because our internet is "gone."
Throttled to the point of nonexistence.
Various other terms that mean that three of us
aren't able to get by on our meager HughesNet
monthly internet allotment.
Ah the joys of rural life....
But I wouldn't give up these views for an internet connection!
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
Our evergreen cedars and pines in the westward view
keep us from having a total color change.
Sometimes we wish we had fewer of them,
but we're glad to have their greenery during the winter!
