Model T Ford truck

CHINA-T-TRUCK 1914 MODEL T ford

Be still my heart

what is it about the past that makes my heart do double flips

I see an old vintage car or truck on the road

and I’m totally smitten and want to get a better look

someone has toiled and laboured… beyond a doubt that machine is loved

the vehicle is totally refurbished, and proudly  driven

what is it .. that not only I, but many others

find so fascinating and worth hours and hours of

dedicated  time and often cost without a second thought

to satsifying our passion for a vehicle long past its prime

I’ve driven by old forgotten garages, on out-of-the-way

and long forgotten highways… we see the closed and boarded up shops

where once people from all around, drove miles to patronize

and now… these shops, and services, on streets in small towns

that are no longer on a busy  thoroughfare

sit bare, empty, and often forlorn, with not hope  of being reclaimed

The merchants, the florists, the cafe owners, all their hopes and dreams have faded

and finally died… forcing them to close up.. and move on…

yet the cars and trucks of yesteryear .. left to rust and be reclaimed by nature.

or sent to their rest in rows upon rows of burnt out metal and chrome

are sought out and given new life… by men and women who want to recapture what was.

Something holds us to the past, not only the vehicles

but the empty barns, farmhouses, abandoned buldings

already,I alone, have collected over 3000 pins (Pinterest) from other

pinners who have a strong penchant for what was….. and i am a mere novice

I believe that what holds us to the past, and has us besotted is a four letter word

CHINA-T- Quote Oscar Wilde on love

Love is a high, it is delicious, it is wonderful

but, it can also hurt and leave one scarred

when we feed our passion that needs expression,

focusing on an inanimate object

it can be so much more satisfying

and we can see the results of our hard work and devotion

hunks of metal, shiny chrome, yeah, they can make me thrill

but a good friend, a trusted friend,

a monent shared with another human being
now that is a truly special gift, whether miles apart or right beside you

love that is sincere, love that is pure. love that is given without condition

that is a connecting energy of past,present and future

it is everlasting and eternal.
