Not yet had its day


Every Sunday a small group of devotees assembles two doors up from the church at the old Mechanics Institute. It's currently doomed by the highway widening but it won't be gone without a fight.

Words to walk with:
Youth, Day, Old Age and Night by Walt Whitman
"Youth, large, lusty, loving-youth full of grace, force, fascination,
Do you know that Old Age may come after you with equal grace,force, fascination?
Day full-blown and splendid-day of the immense sun, action,ambition, laughter,
The Night follows close with millions of suns, and sleep and restoring darkness."

  1. Good for them to put up a fight. I hope they win. It's sad to see old structures torn down only to replace with another strip mall...greed is all it is.
