Signs | Twisp, WA | October 2019

You’ve already made up your mind; you just haven’t admitted it to yourself. The signs you’ve sought from God, the Universe or palm reader Madame Mystic will likely affirm what you already know. That anti-smoking billboard with the cancer-eaten face means, yes, you should toss the cigarettes. A brochure on the sidewalk about decluttering your life means, yes, you should boot the boyfriend. “Life’s short, baby,” from the bus driver means, yes, oh yes, you should definitely slurp down that milkshake. But you already knew all that deep in your heart. So remember: When signs are confusing out there (see photo), we should look for clarity in here.
