I hope this works, dragonswings_4u told me to use photobucket (thanks!!) to upload pics but I'm not sure if I've quite figured it out.

Anyway, piggybacking on his entry from several months ago about destruction in the name of progress...I work at a summer camp in my beloved North Carolina mountains, and on the road to it is a horse pasture that always gives me a sense of peace when I pass it. Well it's been bought and is now being made into an Ingles supermarket that will be finished by the fall (I'll take "after" pics then). It cuts straight through my heart to see the destruction. That which they call construction, progress. It makes me feel sick to my stomach.

Condolences, another piece of quiet beauty gone.

I live in what was once a rural area, lots of pastures, cows, horses, there are still cows behind my house, but each time an old farmer dies, his trees and pastures are sold to developers for subdivisions. What was once home to free range cattle, are now 900 house sub divisions with 3 cars each. Progress, I think not. Guess next year, there will be plenty of beer to console the counselors.
