Living among the world’s largest Amish population, it’s not too difficult to find contrasting images in everyday life. When I pulled into a local furniture store’s parking lot, I thought this captured that contrast perfectly. The image of this Old Order Amish buggy parked beside the SUV spoke for itself. The fact that they both happened to be black enhanced the comparison that we who live here too often take for granted.
Writer, marketer, columnist, author, photographer, birder, walker, hiker, husband, father, grandfather, brother, son, township trustee, converted Anabaptist, community activist, my life is crammed with all things people and nature and wonder. My late father gave me this penchant for giving and getting the most out of life, my late mother the courtesy, kindness, and creativity to see the joy in life. They both taught me to cherish the people I am with. I try and fail and try again.

That’s pretty cool!
This picture reminds me of going to the End of the Commons General Store in Mesopotamia ,Trumbull County, OH. But they have a designated “buggy parking lot” for the large Amish population. The store itself is a historical structure and well-worth worth visiting. http://www.endofthecommons.com/
Thanks, Jarret. I’ll have to check it out.
