I can feel the spring fever bubbling up in side of me!!
It's that time of the year that my thoughts wander to travel and
getting out of the cold.
I'm not the type of gal that jumps on a plane though.
I'm a road tripper.
It's time to hook up my 1968 vintage "Ideal" trailer and hit the road.
I need to see and feel the road underneath my tires.
I need to travel the path less taken.
Although the interstate is convenient for travel,
I like the back roads.
I think the back roads give me a better feel for the
people and the area history.
I love ma and pa dinners and old store fronts.
I like the feeling of stepping back in time.
Stepping back to a more peaceful, calm place.
A place where the front porch was the social meeting place.
Where you could sit and sip ice cold lemon aid on a hot day.
Where a perspective young man could endure meeting the parents.
Although the days of Mayberry, Andy Griffith and Barney Fife
are long gone, I still find it important to slow down.
So in the spirit of wanting to take a road trip but not being able to just yet.
I take out my canvas and paints
and let my imagination take that trip for me.
So I thought Id share a little bit of my imagination with you today.
Here's to the idea the adventure and the longing for
the open road!!
