first love

dear emily,

hans and i fell in love when i "was sixteen, going on seventeen,"
but he was not my first love.

no, my first crush made me swerve off the road onto the sidewalk.

those powerful shoulders . . .

that confident stare . . .

the clear invitation to jump in and drive really fast and far!

but, this hunk was clearly out of my league - one of those "look,
but don't touch" guys!

sometimes, even now, when i drive by, i imagine i see a little 
steam under the hood.


"some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we remember the
name of the Lord, our God."  psalm 20:7
