You

You

Seemingly from out of nowhere

Thoughts of you drift gently into my mind.

They linger for moments then fade away

As dew on a sunny day.

Leaving a small and wistful smile in their wake.

The journey from heart and mind

And back again

In an instant and a lifetime.

–Russ Towne

About russtowne

I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.
