Doesn't everyone need a little Ida?

Here’s a photo of my dear friend Ida in her home. She campaigned for Franklin Roosevelt and for Janet Napolitano in the same lifetime. She teaches poetry and writing to public school kids now.

The other day, we took a walk to the river bed to see the snow melt water in the normally dry arroyo. We sat by the water’s edge and ignored the development around us. Listening to the sound of the rushing water, we told stories of being by the ocean. We leaned back in the sand and fell asleep in the warm sun just like a day at Coney Island with the roller coasters clacking in the distance.
