Day 55

The ol’ wheelbarrow full of fake flowers on a stump

A folk art classic

    It’s amazing how many people are moved to make art. Pick a random road in America and walk down it…

      You know, Ms. Kiviat, that is a very true statement. But what is also true (unfortunately) is that most of us would pick a road and drive down it-way above the speed limit-angry at the people and vehicles we encounter-to get to somewhere else-where we didn’t really want to be. Following Matt’s journey is slowing me down again-as I was when I was younger. Now I’m slowing down for my 7 year old. I really want to take at least a 3 day hike/camp with him sometime soon. Live off of what we can carry in the wilderness for a few days-fish and hike and camp. Hope I can arrange it within the next year or so-about to be 43 and not in the best shape or getting any younger.

    You know how the old saying goes, “when life gives you a stump, a wheelbarrow, and flower seeds… throw the seeds away and get fake flowers instead.”

    My whole life I’ll never understand people who “plant” fake flowers in their yards and containers. I just don’t get it.
