Peace ..

This is a scene of peace.. My uncle Andy at his homestead somewhere around the time of 1984 in the doomed town of Centralia PA..

He didn't live much longer after this photo was taken..

I stumbled across this picture. A family member of mine posted it in a Centralia Facebook group.. Initially when I saw it I was haunted by the image.. But then at peace and filled with humble nostalgia for a simpler time..

There is something purely peaceful about a man in his comfort zone.. He's home, with a grapevine growing out of view of the camera and a yard for his dogs to roam free.. He was home.

Are any of us home anymore? If we are we are on phones or eating up every bit of Wifi we can.. We are quickly running through life on a fast paced mission to no where..

But my uncle, in this photo, was home.
At peace..

I long to go back to the days when I felt at home, too.



STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…
