Musings From the Office




glenda: January 2006
Sitting at work, taking a break. Checked out the website for the Crawford Peace House, an organization in Crawford, Texas, where the Bush ranch is located, in case any of you have been in a coma for the past few years. Check it out. http://crawfordpeace.nfshost.com/
Drove up to Crawford with Mr. K a few months ago to take pictures. It was a divided camp, jean-clad peace activists vs. white Republican ladies wearing their button-down Texas flag shirts and denim skirts. Had a chat with some of the anti-war protesters and was given permission to snap their pictures. It was a beautiful day, dry-golden fields of wheat stubble in the background and the deep blue sky overhead. I asked the protesters where they were from and why they were there, standing on the side of the Texas country road with their signs. Some were from Texas, but many were from other states. Most were individuals, a few came from organizations or political institutions. They were all ages, some students, others were grandparents. It was a glorious day for taking pictures.
