The stone pillars have been there ever since I can remember. Now they’re adorned with ancient vines that twist and flow across hewn stone in a dance that has been going on for decades. Within the threshold of the twin pillars lies forgotten stairs and the old foundation of the bus station. This was once the gateway to adventures untold for those traveling in and out of the mountains. I’ve often thought it was a little odd that there was a bus station in this particular spot since there’s no tourist destination within walking distance of the spot and only homesteads in this area in general. Another ten or fifteen minutes drive would have placed the station in town where there was banks and stores and such. I’m told that it was a greyhound station which brings to mind grand architecture even if was on a smaller scale. Since the pillars are cut stone I imagine that the station itself was built to match with rustic furnishings inside. Perhaps a good radio for travelers to relax to and a two way radio for the attendant to communicate with the bus. As I stand where I imagine that an awning protected travelers from the weather I get the feeling that something there was made of green glass and that the room had that echoing sound that a bus station should have. But now most of the stonework is gone and entrance nothing but a set of empty stairs where a local can pull over and transfer his coffee from the thermos to the tumbler and imagine what used to be. Or on special days perhaps he’ll dream of what may come. Crossroads tend not to be abandoned forever and the secret of the future is in the manifested dreams of those who hold onto hope.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
