photoblog image Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays

This is the roof of the Home Steaders house behind my parents farm house.  The Homestead Act of 1862 declared that any citizen or intended citizen could claim 160 acres - one quarter square mile - of surveyed government land.

I have seen this house almost everyday of my life for 20 years and every year after when I returned home to vist. Never saw this image though until I saw I photo Ginnie Hart took:

Titled: "Hail Mary"

On my next trip home this image became apparent and reminded me of Ginnie's Hail Mary.

Thanks Ginnie.

You are such a sweetheart, John, to remember my Hail Mary in this way. Thank you. I do think that we can see something all our lives and then suddenly one day we REALLY see it as if for the first time. I love that moment of serendipity. Maybe now you'll come up with your own name for her?! smile

What totally surprises me is that we both were thinking of each other's pics and made reference to each other on our sites today, not knowing ahead of time we were doing so. THAT is serendipity! smile
John Eagle: I think Hail Mary is a great name for her. Serendipity is a great thing. Maybe I will call her Serendipity.
