Trucks all over the country are bringing us fresh produce and other goods so that we can step into the markets and buy pretty much whatever we want, from clementines in January to caviar from Russia.  Not too many of us are going into the root cellar for our shriveled beets stored from the summer or eating our own canned tomatoes.  We should have the skills that would allow us to survive if the trucks could not bring our food. I wonder if school would feel more relevant to kids if these skills were taught there.

Great image, Nancy. For years I've been driving up the Jersey Turnpike at the beginning of long trips, entertaining myself by making choices of what I could paint along the way. At one of the rest stops just before Newark there are wonderful overpasses that create amazing shapes, just waiting to be painted by some artist who is in no hurry to get ...wherever.
