Steps Pic #2 Empty Nest

Vintage Paper Pic #1 & #2 from the 1980s-90s I took and used with creative writing.
"Steps" and "Empty Nest"
Taken in Spotsylvania Va
Great to use with  stories/books you create.for yourself or in a classroom to demonstrate creative writing.
I used these two in writing a story about a spider named Harry  who lived on this porch and was lonely and decided to go look for friends. His neighbor friend Barry the Bird had headed south leaving behind this empty nest. 
About 4 in by about 5 3/4 inches.

Old Hurricanes Old Cleanup Old Volunteers

A collection of paper pics taken during involvement in (NAMB) Southern Baptist Disaster Hurricane Relief trips to Florida that started with Hurricane Andrew and continued til 2008.
 
The area is Pensacola Florida.
The dates on the back of some of the pics is 2004.
A few pics have names. Some were developed at stores. Some were printed from a digital cam to a home printer. The disaster crews shared their pictures of weather history with their fellow volunteers and mailed them to each other after they got home.
Back then...the Salvation Army and the Baptist Group and the Red Cross worked together to get the job done. The Baptist focused on the feeding. You can see the Salvation Army trucks parked close by. Street scenes showing some of the work the volunteers had done clearing the streets.

Andrew Weil ... I agree.... do you blog reader?

...In describing my own experiences of depression, I wrote that I thought the intense introspection associated with them was somehow a source of inspiration. I felt that going inward so deeply, even in such negative moods, allowed me access to creative energy otherwise out of reach.

And I thought to myself...I'm going home later and Facebook this:::: Here's a NOT welcome back to school message to all my dear retired teacher Facebook buddies who loved teaching but also love retirement!!!!  :)

Thinking of You Texas Sunday When I Took this Pic


But it wasn't until I loaded this pic on my computer that I saw "beyond" ...I then saw the gator symbolizing the dangers you and all of us face here on earth...the handicap sign symbolizing the handicaps we face as we age here on earth. ...BUT ...  The Cross symbolizes  what gets us through the rough times here on earth.
