We did some more wandering this week. Indiana and a smidgen of Ohio. The Casey's weren't plentiful, so we couldn't use that as our marker. We did pass four Confederate flags however, so that's a marker of sorts when you're driving through small towns. I feel as though I am seeing something I need to see as we drive through all these little towns. I can't quite articulate it. We pass lots of Trump signs and you can smell the alienation that seems to have ended us up where we are. I still can't fathom the connection that took us from that alienation to Trump, but the alienation I begin to understand. We also come across a lot of POW flags…sometimes in empty storefronts. There's something to be learned from these drives. I don't know what I will do with it but I feel it.

One thing I WILL be doing is exhibiting some of my roadside photos during the Boneyard Arts Festival, at 25 O'Clock. One of the owners, our beloved friend Tom, kindly offered space there for me. I am excited, and nervous, of course. I'm only going to show current photos…for some reason I feel strongly that they all be current glimpses of what is around us. I'll post more info as we get closer, but it's the weekend of April 5-7.

  1. PS. In 2016, driving from Wheeling, WV through coal country to Knox County, OH we saw 1 or 2 Hillary signs for every 100 for Trump. Signs said “Coal-fire Obama.” I think a little of the bloom is off the rose now because so many of the farmers around Danville grow soybeans We used to be annoyed by the sound of the soybean dryer. Didn’t hear it this year.
