6 Mile

7 thoughts on “6 Mile”

  1. I have loved living in places where everybody waves when they drive past, although the first few times I experienced it I wondered who I was being mistaken for.

    I prefer “doughnut” because I love the idea of a big, sugary nut of dough, and the short spelling seems boring in comparison.

    I love going back home, and it’s harder to leave every time.


  2. We have been wandering around the foothills of the Adirondacks in College Writing, thanks to Rainlight. This place is as entrancing in fiction as it is in fact.


  3. Beautiful post and photos. This post brought tears to my eyes. So many sweet and real moments documented. I also love that there are Amish donuts available, and I think I am going to have to seek these out. I have a love of the Amish from my childhood in Ohio… but I never saw them selling donuts!


  4. Nicole, I wonder if the Amish you grew up with are now selling donuts. I think it’s a pretty recent thing. When I wrote this I pictured one of your posts which featured photos of you with your parents. (Love that.)


  5. As I age, the fonder I become of that place I once called home, the southwestern Minnesota prairie. Like you, each time I return now, I find it harder to leave.

    Your feelings and observations expressed in this moving post resonate with me. Thank you for reminding me just how much I remain rooted in my native prairie.
