Today we repeatedly juxtaposed old and new, sun and shadow. We didn’t set out to do that…it just…happened.
We drove a stretch of the Old Dixie Highway, and saw a bit of Old Dixie, noting eroded soils, falling-down wooden buildings, weeds in droves, aging pecan groves, and rising fire-ant hills.
We also wound through back streets of Social Circle and Madison, trying to avoid the new construction and the upscale. We went by the HS of SC and saw the football players dispersing after practice, all headed, one by one, to jacked up shiny pickups. Where has all that money come from?
The highlight was visiting the new-old house of family (see cat in “cat-through”), and attending a dinner celebrating ninety big years.
