How I relate to the poem
2005-08-27
Added by: Ray Rasmussen
My 20-year-old daughter just left for 'a year or so of travel' where she expects to find good people, jobs to pay her way, no medical problems ... just plain good stuff. Like Dunn, I cringe when I think of the dangers, of the possibilities of a pile of negative experiences. My friends say "let her go." Of course, I will, like Dunn, I have no choice, no better story to keep her in town, in the same old, same old.
