Cars and trucks are mighty fine. So are airplanes and buses. This is just a mediation on how many ways there are of getting around.
Even getting to work (this was taken in the employee parking lot of a local hospital).
And there’s getting around just for the fun of it
and in the imagination
and by train (Yonkers, New York, taken from the train)
Or on foot
or just catching a ride.
I’ve been busy this week taking classes, which has led me to thinking, among other things, about how much of life is spent wishing for something.
Like world peace, or
or a nice get-away vacation, or
some “new” stuff
or new horizons, or
just freedom. Depending on where you are at the time.
A favorite aunt brought me to the first second-hand store I ever went to. We had to drive quite a distance to find it. In our rural area, if you were done with something, you just gave it to somebody else. It was quite amazing to find you could just go out to a store and find treasures. These photos were take outside Circa, one of my favorite treasure hordes.
And this is the item I would have bought, had I the money or space for it. I likes these bowls too.
and I was tempted (as always) to go inside.
But this is what I really would have bought. Doesn’t it look comfy?
It’s a concept that’s disappearing in some parts of the world, but Charlottesville still has one. The parking is difficult, but the offerings are attractive.
There’s entertainment too.
and it’s a place where people congreate.
and look for help.
