Memories and when everything is nothing....


One of the diminishing good points about my current job is that I get to stay with my little sister in Ohio every month or so and catch up on the old stomping grounds. This time I drove around on the dirt roads surrounding our old family farm. There are now over a dozen houses sitting on land I farmed and hunted as a boy. It was a beautiful afternoon and i had time to kill. I stopped at a turnoff where I parked a car 30 yrs ago this summer and gave a girl her first orgasm. That is a story that deserves it's own post. I was led to this hidden spot originally by my great uncle who was showing me a fantastic woods for morel mushrooms. I know that spot is hunted out after all these years but I got out of the Blazer and started toward it anyway. There was a small woods, then an open pasture that led to the old mushroom woods. About 1/4 mile across the open pasture was an old farmstead. A small by todays standards two story Victorian farmhouse in reasonable shape, a two car garage far enough away that it didn't ruin the original setting of the house,a few small outbuildings and a HUGE barn that dwarfed all the other buildings. The garden was plowed but not yet planted and the perennials were bursting out in the flower beds. With the warm sun, the budding trees and fresh green pasture it was a truly beautiful site AND one that would rarely be seen when my son reaches my age. After satisfying my curiosity and relaxing while viewing the farm I went back to the Blazer. Not a mile from that beautiful little farm nestled in the hills I came upon a sprawling modern suburban style home nearly the size of the barn on that beautiful farm. it was complete with a suburban style perfect bare lawn in the front and a woods in the rear. It lacked any single function other than a place to live and to show status. Some people think they have everything but really have nothing at all....
