The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Abandoned Home


Near the Sunflower River between Ruleville and Cleveland Mississippi





Only this chair remained waiting for its owner to return someday.

  1. Always wondering . Who lived there an what where they doing in such remote post. Also the fact that such a humble housing still had a roof for a car. Fascinating.

  2. Strange that the chair looks so much better than the house.

    The decline of these buildings tells an interesting story - but the people who could tell it have gone.

  3. It looks always a bit sad, it must have been a pretty house to live in. The left chair is weird, it is in a far better state as the house indeed.

  7. One of the things that grab my attention is the garage. Someone tried some fixing and got the angle all wrong on the right side, and left it that way. Maybe that was the straw that broke the dweller's back.
