It may seem uncouth posting a photo of my ex-gf Carlee, and I don’t care what you think because I’m not getting paid enough to hold your hand and make . . .

Lost my chain of thought. Hell, I barely can forge a single link much less a chain. Where was I?

Right. I’ve always liked this photo because Carlee was in such excellent spirits and seeing her happy was the first time since my mom had died a year earlier that I felt at peace.

I’m glad I still have this photo. Natural Bridges National Monument, Utah, July 2012.
