South…

South GA.jpg

Deep south, Georgia, on the Suwannee River. A park off of Interstate 75 that gives weary travelers a break, if headed north maybe a last look at the old time south.

If you were to visit in the summertime you would find that areas like this are ruled by gnats, mosquitos, cicadas and tree frogs. A mishmash of sounds assault your ears as the cicadas and frogs sing their songs while constant buzzing of the mosquitos are in and out of your ears.  Don’t worry, the gnats have you eyes and nose occupied.

It’s easy to feel transported to a different time and place where nature rules and man is an afterthought. I can’t wait to go back.

Down low

Leaf 1.jpgLeaf 2.jpgLeaf 3.jpgI work in what has to be the most sound polluted neighborhood in… I don’t know but if you walk outside one of the 10 different lawn maintenance crews are going to either blow you away with leaf blowers, run you over with lawn mowers or just stampede you try to put out flowers or trim bushes.  I get it… it’s their job and they got work to do but jeezz…  ANYWAY I went outside during lunch and was walking around moments before a leaf blower started up on the other side of the building. In just a few minutes these little treasures would be vanquished from existence. Sometimes you need to slow down and look around…you never know what you’re missing.
