A Phoenix Blessing
Bless this house, oh Lord, we cry.
Please keep it cool in mid-July.
Bless the walls where termites dine, while ants and roaches march in time.
Bless our yard where spiders pass the fire ant castles in the grass.
Bless the garage, a home to please carpenter beetles, ticks and fleas.
Bless the love bugs, two by two, the gnats and mosquitoes that feed on you.
Millions of creatures that fly or crawl, in Texas, Lord, you’ve put them all!!
But this is home, and here we’ll stay, So thank you Lord, for insect spray.
Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.
Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.
Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.
Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.
What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.
