A Walk Up The Blacktop

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Summer Daydreams 63020a” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The warm breeze and bright sun pulls me back through the river of time to the days of innocence. In a simpler age when the road was paved with tar and on a hot day one might spin on a heel and leave a mark on the blacktop. The roads always seemed to be lined with daisies and in a few spots blackberries hung out over the berms. I remember walking over a mile or so to the general store with a little change. Along the way I would just reach out and pull a handful of berries off of the canes to enjoy as I walked. We’d buy a glass bottle of Mountain Dew that at the time still had a hillbilly on the logo. On the return trip there was the daisies. As we passed by insects of every kind hopped or flew to a better location. Butterflies were often so interested in flowers that they didn’t notice our approach until we were almost on top of them. Then with ease they would simply flip to a different bloom a little farther into weeds. We’d follow the clusters of daisies until we ran out of paved road. That’s how we knew that we’d made it home. Hone is always were the blacktop ends and the dirt road welcomes you back.
