Last night, driving home from daycare I stopped at a gas station. The man's name tag behind the counter read, "Noor." There was a tiny plastic camel on the edge of the cash register and I wondered who had given to him. Daughter, granddaughter, niece, nephew...Did he put it there, finding it perhaps in a box of something that was sent to him and decided to put it out. Maybe it reminds him of home. I wondered where he was from.

my dad used to keep a little wooden train whistle at his desk with him. i think so he could pretend he was on a train probably traveling cross country, in the smoking car of course, when he didn't want to be in his office.
