Heart of America

 Saw a teeny news clip
inviting citizens to travel to the center of our nation
-coming together to pray.-

 Here's my 'Urban Sketch'
of the chapel we'd find.

love & love,

On a mission . . .

Greetings from The Garden in July.

Isn't this stunning?

There are black & white photos
from another century
showing people standing on these.
Not me
Not ever

Back to the Garden . . .

 Now, where were we?

Everything is different.
So, how do we find ourselves again?

For me it's going to be "The Garden"

The facility is being remodeled.
What used to be the Main entrance and welcoming center has been torn out.
We get to make reservations.
I present my ticket, someone scans, makes happy talk and let's me in.
Children shout "Look!"
Grown-ups answer - "Yes!  Leave it there!"
Areas have been unlocked again.

Waaaaay back there - people are arriving.
 I'll ask the teeny camera to zoom . . .

Gettin' Better


This place was worth finding.
It's a little park in Saint Louis County.
The kind people of  "Town & Country, MO."
purchased some old, original homes and moved them to this property
and created a lovely place for families to enjoy.

Here's my park partner.  
We especially enjoy the trails.

Today the "teeny trails" have the promise of children playing.

Hello, Tom!
It's "Gettin' Better All The Time!"
The Beatles.

little  path behind a tree .  .  .
These stepping stones are new - 
Welcoming Spot

 Sweet View.

Visits to The Garden can resume.

Finally, a camera in our pocket . . .

 Our schedule is So Different

Now we are
 Saturday - Sunday

So, we piled in the car,
took work shoes for repair
returned to a park we visited once before.

out of the car . . . 
on our way

Horse drying out after the rain.

Beautiful trails around back.

Spring demanding attention.
