Good Morning Everyone….
Time to hit the road, time to travel along a route not followed before. Finding the secondary roads that will lead past delightful vistas that will please the visual senses. There was a time when cars did not have air conditioning, we drove with the windows down. We could smell the various odours our climate brings to our faculties that carry the “notes” to the brain. The heat on the dusty roads, the vegetation parched waiting for rain, or the moisture from the lake wafting up so that for the seconds we pass, we smell the algae, hear the frogs, even see fish leaping out of the water, depending on how close we were to t he water’s edge. How different our rides were, we seldom went by water on a hot day without seeing boats, and people near or on the water participating in water activities. Enjoying the outdoors was what the summer days were all about.
Now it just isn’t the same, super highways and main roads take us away from the populated areas, and when we do pass playgrounds, picnic areas, and lakes, often they are void of people. Where is everyone, and what are they doing? Not only that often when we drive by farmland, I’m saddened to see bare grazing land, and often scenes like this.
and this, I can’t help but wonder at what the building was like in another time, and how full of laughter,tears and sorrows must have transpired for it to now be but a memory.
Let us start today dear friends, to live with our best intentions to make this a week a time to remember. Lets say thank you and show appreciation for the people who are close to us. Give thanks for the moments shared as we make our way on this road of life. It is our journey and we are never alone.
In response to your requests, here are a couple of toe tappers =^_^= and I do agree with you all, no matter your personal beliefs, the words and feelings of these tunes leave you JOYFUL ..
