Long Term Parking 

This Jeep was parked in this very spot when I was a kid.  It’s one of several old Willie’s Jeeps that the landowner has. In my imagination I can see young soldiers crossing the battlefield in this jeep. I imagine the stories of home that are exchanged.  The men are hopeful because the war is over and they are returning home.  I imagine that when the jeep is sold as surplus it falls into hands of someone who puts his heart and soul into making it roadworthy again.  I can see him exit the highway on a whim to explore some mountain trail. He and his jeep are a good match.  They are both rugged and free spirited.  Not to bound down by the well traveled highway which goes only to and fro but not out.  I imagine the fishing and camping trips with friends and laughter they enjoyed.  The jeep started out with a mission to bring people home. Now with it’s mission accomplished it was time to rest.  It made one last trip.  It’s last escape from the pavement on the edge of the home it came back to.  There it could stay parked and enjoy the peace.

    this is a matter of thought,
    what is WAS . . . whereas we
    are, least we were, that you
    and me should ‘NEVER LOOK BACK,’
    history is bunk, NOBODY is
    powerful enough to mediate
    history.

    THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGER
    REASONS David loves taking
    photographs – could be that
    in my fright of accepting said
    truth i just prooved it WRONG!

    PHOTOGRAPHY IS THE BEST
    REPORTER EVER CREATED!

    had lots of cameras, beginning
    in 1986 with a RICHO something.
    that brand seems to be no more;
    but in 1986 is was producing…

    anyways – photo’s are the most
    honest way concerning proof – it
    is undeniable that whhAtever’s
    in frame IS.

    all the photo design and
    digital cameras miss the
    mark. yea, they are good
    at what they do; but to be
    a more decent photo graph
    creator is a misnomer, it’s
    His stuff, NOT yours. if in the
    world, He created it. we copy
    what He made. shame on us. ./. ‘IT’S ULTRAMAN!’

    wooo, a little burned out with
    hen-pecking…
    till then?

    1. that’s what photographs are best at,
      are: continued emotion; that is is if
      photos taken anyway, stirs memory.
      and not transporting one to the very
      instant you feel it’s (the photo’s) vibe
      or thoughts that came to your noodle
      whilst re3flecting the image.
      some do not see photo’s like that, and
      it’s a shame… that’s what painting with
      what it’s all about, at least to me.
      can i make suggestion of a cooler sight?

      and here is a great radio listen to to be find
      a source of continued observance – It’s ALL CHRIST –
      what’s observed? our very soul! souls do at a
      given moment [ALL TIME] reflect what is truer
      than not in relation to our intent. PRAISE THAT
      MOMENT OF FORGIVENESS when we stumble in
      this globe that he created as a testing, training
      place that does express the love we have for Him
      inside our hearts, not brains.
      https://jesus.net/praise exposes truth through the
      song that sometimes leaves, for whatever He deems
      reasonable. music had been my bastion of ability but
      it became a source of vanity.
      AND IN THAT PRAYER; BEING ANSWERED PHY6SICALLLY…
      not very good, in mu opinion, was good enough to go the
      required practice to get to the point that could praise Him
      blessing with music the only opinion comparing an ability.
