PHOTO PROMPT -© Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

I can’t believe I could get everything I posses in a little four by six foot moving trailer. Thirty five years old and in this little truck are all my worldly possessions.

Looking out my hotel window on this cold and raining night just confirms my desire to leave this depressing mid west town. I  told her it was the best solution for our problems. Starting the affair was my fault. I never wanted to be a home wrecker. I couldn’t stay in the same town with her.

Another two days on the road and I  will be in Tucson.

  11. This is such a depressing piece! In a very good way. Parking lots on rainy nights cry out for depressing.
