This is from Part III
“The lavender spring lilac is my favorite flower. The soft purple color and the fragrant smell are as calming and nurturing to me as if I were wrapped in a quilt. I missed that smell when I lived in the Southwest with its stimulating green eucalyptus scents. I was elated driving through the lush greenery of Southern Missouri in 1995 on my way home from the West Coast, the smell of moist earth all around me. The air was my lunch no utensils necessary. In my travels, I’d driven Highway Fortytwicec now. I was hoping the sight of the never-ending stretch of black highway, tires spinning with my restless soul would be the last.”
