A drive in America...






You know, they say Americans are stuck on themselves...I don't think that is quite true...well maybe, but we have a very short foot print compared to our neighbors and our Native American brothers and sisters.

I just think we have a deep rooted pride in what our nation was built on...we were all refugees at one point in time and have accomplished quite a bit in a very short time frame, whether good or bad...we are here and we love our land...and this new world is beginning to awaken from the long sleep of greed and corruption.

Hopefully some day our Grandchildren will get it all figured out...that we are not just African American or Latin American or German American...we are human beings...all the same with different cultures, but breathing the same air...we share spirit with the past...and pray for a future.

i think we could all manage if religion would change. Most conflicts arise when religion is thrown in the mix.

Beautiful collection of photos for this week's sky watch friday. Do you think if everyone participated in our sky watching they would start to understand we all live under the same sky.

Those old barns seem to sing with stories! Enjoyed the drive viewing them!
