Weary Wings

When you're down and troubled and you need a helping hand 
and nothing,
 whoa, nothing is going right. 
Close your eyes and think of me 
and soon I will be there 
to brighten up even your darkest nights. 

 You just call out my name, 
and you know where ever I am 
I'll come running to see you again. 
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, 
all you have to do is call and I'll be there, 
yeah, yeah, you've got a friend.

Clouds Over the Mountains

A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed... It feels an impulsion... this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons. 
~ Richard Bach

Hummingbird - Little Angel in Flight

Across the downs a hummingbird 
Came dipping through the bowers, 
He pivoted on emptiness 
To scrutinize the flowers.

Over Here Mom!

Being a parent is like being a catcher. 
You gotta handle whatever is thrown your way. 
 ― Tom Swyers

Have you ever watched the baby birds beg Mom/Dad for food?  They fluff up and display their wings as if to say ...."over here .... I'm over here" 
and then usually the parent comes over and feeds them, 
which is exactly what happened
after I took this shot :)

Crossing Tom's Creek

Wander a whole summer if you can...time will not be taken from the sum of your life. Instead of shortening, it will definitely lengthen it.....

Heritage Park Reflections

So come to the pond, 
or the river of your imagination, 
or the harbor of your longing, 
 and put your lips to the world. 
 And live your life.

Old Pembroke Bridge

Old Pembroke Bridge - Pembroke, Virginia
Giles County
Also known as New River Bridge

Info from the Library of Congress:

  The New River Bridge at Pembroke is unusual in its combination of various truss types and engineering details, many of which are unique in the area and survive only rarely statewide. Built in 1915-1916 by the Virginia Bridge and Iron Company of Roanoke, Virginia, it combines seven spans, six of which are carried by metal trusses of four different varieties. The bridge demonstrates the persistence of at least three early technological solutions generally abandoned by the turn of the century: nonriveted field constructions, the use of all pin connections (on the three main spans), and the incorporation of hand-forged welds and wrought iron for various structural members. Within the state, it contains the greatest number and variety of truss types for a given automotive crossing. Additionally, Virginia's longest Pennsylvania Petit through truss is found here, being the last of three bridges of this type to survive. Two other rare statewide features are metal column piers and a Pratt deck truss, the last of two to survive. The New River Bridge is nestled against Castle Rock, one of the most scenic natural formations in the region. The juxtaposition of technological and natural landmarks makes for a unique site.
