And tonight while friends in Toccoa gather for the Taste of Toccoaâ€”an outdoor event that always attracts lots of peopleâ€”I’ll be gathering my thoughts and wondering what in the world I’m going to do with these photos. It is truly my “tale of two cities”â€”small town verses uptown.
The sign reminds me that everything will be okay; but in a small town, people would put a Scripture verse at the end of the sentenceâ€”just so you would know it is real. Perhaps something like Philippians 4:6-7 would work. (smile)
Then I guess this “city” photograph sends a message to all of us who have faced a layoff and lived to tell about it. You can always “bloom” somewhere.
Finally, even the dogs look different in the city. It’s the eyesâ€”a hypnotic stare that seems to be looking for a good hiking trail or something worth chasingâ€”something like maybe the black bear or the deer that stroll across my yard in Toccoa.
