Shiny new buildings and skyscrapers are a sign of progress, but there’s a lot to be said for the old days and the old ways. Today, I am combining my blog with my Facebook artist challenge. Here is one of my watercolor paintings along with a poem that I wrote about an old weathered door.

Let’s not forget our legends. Let’s not throw away the old for something new. Newer, younger, shinier isn’t always better.

WOW! Here is one weeks worth of nails that I found while walking. Saving the world from flat tires. I think this was a world’s record. Where’s my cape? Oh yes, I found several shiny lucky pennies, too. SUPER TONI
