“If your theology causes you to treat other people as less worthy of a home or love or care or safety than yourself, it isn’t worth keeping. Religion at its best will always welcome the stranger, mend wounds, share blessings, remove barriers, and expand the table.” ~ John Pavlovitz 

 

in the morning

 

In November 2012, the first year of the outhouse, I posted a photo of this same house. Earlier this month I walked by it again. Unlike before, it looks empty now. The posted notices indicate it might be condemned (though I don’t know that for sure as I did not read them). From the outside it didn’t look any worse than it did before. In any case, I love the little place, and I hope, whatever may be wrong, someone loves it back to health. Sipping coffee from it’s little front porch would be delightful.

 

straight on

The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.” ~ Plutarch

alley back in time

A scene caught my eye that I never noticed before, though I’ve passed it a hundred times. This shotgun house sits parallel to the Transylvania University ball field. It’s dwarfed by the brick fence, larger Bluegrass Trust homes, and Hazelrigg Hall. Everything about it was crooked. Everything about it was cool. I’d be pleased to sit on its front porch.
