A View From the Road

Public Art at a Missouri Rest Stop     We pulled into a rest stop, in Missouri, and were greeted by this clever little man.     We are all more aware of things that go wrong than what goes right; an untidy rest stop can sour not only the moment, but our overview of…

Albert Einstein     “There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle.  The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ~ Albert Einstein ~   There is much to love about Washington D.C., including its endless unexpected offerings – like coming upon Albert Einstein, deeply engrossed…

Picture Perfect     Driving along the coast, in Massachusetts, I happened to spot this man, standing on the rocks; positioning himself to take the perfect picture – of course, to me he was picture perfect!

When we first saw the truck,…

A Topiary Truck I love road side advertising; the more creative the better! I was driving down Jefferies Boulevard in Waterboro, South Carolina, when I spotted this very clever View From the Road; I had to turn around.
