44: At a crossing


It seems our country has been stuck at a crossing, waiting for the train (wreck) that is GW to go on by.  Today he finally has and the crossing arms are rising to a new day and a new president.  Thank goodness for change.


[Editor’s Note] 

This post is inspired, of course, by our new president, President Barack Obama, and by a fellow blogger Melissa at I Have Mom Hair Now  (and Shutter Sisters) who encouraged everyone to post a photo and write 44 words for our 44th president – see above paragraph.

I was also reminded and inspired by my son yesterday morning that yesterday was a day of service.  My son’s intention was to donate blood, however he called back several hours later with two badly sprained ankles from a bad snow boarding wipe out.  Hopefully he’ll still be able to donate today.  What were your plans for this day of service?

  1. This shot turned out great and I hope Mr Obama turns out to be as great as a lot people are saying. I will pray for Mr Obama and our nation today.

    I love the dangerous looking lights! How did you do that?

    Hooray for change and Obama symbolizes that better than anyone else could. Yesterday 4 generations of my family picked up trash. We’re ready for a clean start!

  5. Kym, I have no idea how I did that! It could have been a couple of raindrops on the windshield – that’s the only thing I could think of when I first saw the image on my laptop. Yay to clean starts!!

  6. Interesting ghosting with the lights. I like your 44 words

    Excellent use of 44 words!

  8. Great photo and very fitting words! Glad to join this project. I donated a bag of groceries to a food bank for my service project. Fun!
