long lost friends

i went for a long walk through hollywood cemetery this morning. its the most lovely and peaceful place on an sun drenched day in early spring. trees blooming, big fat robins singing, the river rushing by. i collected a handful of lovely old southern names that have been bouncing around my head ever since.


i like to wander the shady hills of the cemetery and wonder who those women were. sometimes i think of them as long lost friends and imagine inviting them to a tea.
but, the best name, my favorite long lost friend today? lettice lee.
i bet she went by lettie.
