Places Traveled ~

Pearl S. Buck, Birthplace, Hillsboro, W.Va.

“Write a novel if you must, but think of money as an unlikely accident. Get your reward out of writing it, and try to be content with that.”  ~ Pearl S. Buck, (1892 – 1973).

Pearl Buck was a prolific writer and the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938 for The Good Earth. She was the daughter of missionaries and spent the majority of her formative years in China as well as her early adult life. Her Chinese name is Sai Zhenzhu. She wrote extensively in her novels about the plight of women, the poor, and social injustices.

This image was taken while on a rural road trip through West Virginia. I wasn’t expecting this to be here, so it was a great surprise! The stately rural home is now a museum. It was not only an interesting experience, but educational, and the staff was so welcoming. The natural beauty of this part of West Virginia is so breathtaking and is a journey I would love to take again. Oh, and don’t forget to stop along the way for a slaw dog, a menu specialty throughout West Virginia.  ~

Photography ~ Places I’ve Been

Glasgow Cathedral or High Kirk, Glasgow, Scotland.

Here are some images from my 2016 trip through Scotland. I captured these with my old Nikon D50, which I have kept as my backup camera. I was so surprised when we arrived at Brig O’Doon… I thought it was only an imaginary place! I am so intrigued by the centuries and centuries of history when I travel in Europe and all the beautiful sites. I have no idea of who painted the man with the bird on the building or why, but it is just beautiful. If you know more, please enlighten us.

I have written before about my favorite vacation spot to visit in South Carolina. However, I am missing it this year as many of you are probably missing going other places. So I will not whine and be thankful for all the times that I have been able to visit and know more times will come. I wanted to share this little bird that I would see every time I would go. I thought he was a permanent resident until I decided to learn more about him. I found that he also visited at the same time every year…. just like me! The male painted bunting is such a lovely creature. A bird with a coat of many colors. Who knew?

Terre's Blog - Women of All Seasons (17)

Drifting through the salt marsh

bending the tall grasses

in a sea of green.

Egrets keeping a wary eye

notice my passing by.

Smelling the warm pluff mud

under the sweating sun,

under a broad blue sky

life carries on.

Sunday

U.S. Library of Congress. Norman Rockwell Art - The Golden Rule

This saying or a close form of it is found in many faith traditions from Confucius,  Judaism, Christianity, and probably many others. Whatever your personal beliefs, this is something we can all do our bit to work towards … especially being respectful and kind to one another. Why is something so simply and beautifully stated, so hard to do?

Hope your Sunday is a peaceful and start to a good week. No matter what is going on with you or in your community, we’re all in this together. It is our world and it is what we make it.

Poetry: Come Travel Love

tch c2020

Come travel with me love,

Be at my side

to explore together 

the here and the wide.

We’ll drift far along our way,

as we sail across the many waves.

Come travel with me love,

Be at my side.
