Picture a Day

Between Garner State Park and Leakey, Texas. Picnic area.

US Hwy 83

"Oh and if any one should happen to find my Proof of Auto Insurance along this friggin' road, let me know will ya? Had the windows down in the Saturn Express going about 80 when the durn thing flew out one of the windows!"

I Got to Thinking The Other Day

"Our House. In the Middle of Our Street"
Our House In the Middle of Our Street

When the painters were here...

As I was standing out side contemplating the vision represented above, we had such plans, such plans and dreams. Not just for the house. But for our life together. And for the house, of course.

I have watched (and participated in making) all of that slowly and surely disintigrate into dust in the wind. It made me kind of melancholy.

But as a woman wise beyond her years once said...

"When one door closes, another door opens. But we often look so regretfully upon the closed door that we don't see the one that has opened for us."

I, for one, think I can finally see, not only the open door, but some of what lies beyond it. And I think... No I know, it will be great for all of us. Well if not great, then at least better.
