(Day 48) The good ole days

Isn't it a strange quirk of human nature that quite often we remember the past as being the good old days ? Perhaps it's a blessing that the hard times that we couldn't wait to let slip into history also slip from our minds.

Conversely I'm sure that this barn's good ole days were far better than its present state. Physically we are headed towards a similar state, despite oils and creams and spa treatments that promise to delay the inevitable. We have the real promise that we can put our hope in a future that far outshines any glory of the present, or past. We simply need to take hold of it.

Wow. I think old cabins like this only improve with age!

This photo is great, I love how you framed it so that lots is left up to the imagination.

Thanks Krista. I'm learning all the time and I'm trying to 'see' better when I aim the lens :)
