Back in another lifetime, Karen and I were bound for Europe and a few hours before our plane was to take off, we realized it was taking off in a few hours instead of later that night. For some reason we thought our flight left at 10:50 PM, but it was really AM. We threw our black leggings, over-sized t-shirts, Ton-Sur-Ton sweatshirts, and shoulder pads into a suitcase and called our friend, John, who lived around the corner. He rushed over to drive us to the airport. With only minutes to spare, instead of putting the pedal to the metal, John pulled into a donut shop parking lot and stopped the car. We both panicked and screeched that we'd be late and miss our flight as he got out of the car and went into the donut shop. He returned a moment later with a bag of donuts and a smile. There's always time for a buttermilk donut, he said, as he handed each of us a donut. We made it to the airport in time, laughing all the way.
A new donut shop opened in walking distance of my yellow house. So, I drove over there. I never forgot John's life lesson and for the sake of ART, I bought a few donuts.
This donut print is available for purchase in my etsy shop.
