Pale Horses

I saw death on Christmas eve.

we were driving back from church service along Wyoming Blvd to my parents' home in Albuquerque, NM. We were talking about the church service and the white elephant gift exchange- the spirit of Christmas was in the air... until we came up on the intersection where Wyoming meets Spain St. There were lights flashing that had nothing to do with the holidays there. Police were there- a fire engine and an ambulance too. Driving past, I fought the urge to rubber neck, but my wife, Stephanie said she saw white powder all over the street- covering up large amounts of blood from the remains of a motorcycle and a car.
just that quick
and unexpected.
take that home and think about it.
