Leaving the past behind

When Candy met Lawrence on a corner in Denver, Co.

When Candy met Lawrence on a corner in Denver, Co.

It was a long trip, and we traveled by car through 8 or 9 states (it is a matter of debate) with 2 kids, a tent, and a car full of equipment.  We had the chance to see a lot, to think a lot, and finally to agree that a lot of changes need to be made in a lot of areas of our lives.  This is one of the unfortunate by-products of these type of road trips.  They almost demand that nothing remain the same once the trip is over.  So, the web site has been changed, attitudes have been adjusted, and just like the picture above, we are left looking at the world as though everything before us is somehow old and in need of a modern touch.  I like the picture above, though.  It has the quality of timelessness that we most often experience with Black and White images.  I look at the image, and my heart bleeds with nostalgia, and I guess that is why it is so hard to commit to change.  The past is a tough anchor to let go of when you realize that without it you might just end up anywhere.
