Hometown Park

Throughout my childhood and teen years, I played tons of tennis, baseball and basketball at this hometown park.  I spent more time here than I can imagine calculating.  While on a recent visit, I had fun checking out the park for the first time in decades.   The configuration of fields and courts have changed, but the feel and essence are as if I walked off the court moments ago.

Worthy

From today’s worship set … inspiring, beautiful, and profound.  I love Sunday worship.

It was my cross You bore
So I could live in the freedom You died for
And now my life is Yours
And I will sing of Your goodness forevermore

<Chorus>

Worthy is Your name, Jesus
You deserve the praise
Worthy is Your name
Worthy is Your name, Jesus
You deserve the praise
Worthy is Your name

Memorial Day – Small Town USA

I just returned from an extended weekend in western North Carolina with my best bud Carl.  Among the many other great things about the trip, it reminded me how much I value and miss my small town roots.  Small towns often do the important things in a big way!  I witness this incredible example on my route home.  Sylva, NC is a vibrant small town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and its historic courthouse is amazing.  Checkout the flags raised in honor of Memorial Day and the fallen.  I happened to meet a local during my stop who told me they “sell” sponsorships for these flags, not only for the community to honor the importance of Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Veterans Day, but also as a means of community outreach.  He said 200 flags represents around $10K of “sponsorships,” 100% of which goes to a large number of needs within the community.  This year they’ve raised $18K so far.

Midtown Architecture

I’m still exploring and loving this new space.  Eventually I hope to time an interesting subject walking through the frame, but in the meantime I’m enjoying the architecture all by itself.  The “hanging bubbles” are a super cool touch!

Between the Lines

In an ideal world, I would have preferred the subject be slightly better placed for separation to draw better attention to him.  Still, I love the overall graphic nature of this space and the resulting image.
