In celebration of Labor Day Terry, Casey and I visited the Flint Hills. Following the “America’s By-Ways” route from Callaway, Ks. to Council Grove, we spent a day surrounded by evidences of a simpler way of life: small towns, coffee shops and two lane highways.
The grasslands, rolling hills and unassuming waterways are lovely, if not dramatic.
Abandoned houses seem just a little bit more exotic in the Flint Hills than when we see them in our own community.
Death comes as surely as anywhere else.
