Fall

There are some things about being in the South that are truly amazing. One such thing would be fall, with the explosion of colors and the way the leaves fall and settle on the ground (or in the case of where I live dirt roads). I hope you all enjoy these pictures.

Reliving a lost art

Today my heart was made glad by a seemingly normal event. My daughter got some fan mail from her friends in Seattle by way of the United States postal service. In other words she got some letters in the mail. Normally it’s not that big of a deal I just thought it was so cool that instead if email or text or any of the other social media devices that are available today this group of 12 & 13 year old girls choose snail mail.
It brought to mind so many years past when my friends and I would write letters when separated by distance or summer break. It makes me glad to think that perhaps all will not be lost with younger generations. Perhaps they will keep some of the old art forms alive such as letter writing.
