Show us what endurance means to you. Is it that high-school diploma, beads of sweat earned on a long run, a treasured family heirloom, or something else entirely?

    1. It’s amazing it can still stand and nice that it has been left standing. In a more tidy suburb, I’m sure someone would cut it down as a safety hazard. Around here, it’s a haven for wildlife. Hollow old trees are full of birds, small animals … and a quadrillion bugs.


  1. Great collection, thoughtfully assembled. I love the comparison of sculptures from antiquity matched in endurance by “old” trucks–of a still new culture. I love your architectural choices as well. Perfect!


    1. These are fun for me … my personal “best of Marilyn” theme-based sets. I wish I had more pictures of really OLD places, but this is the U.S. and aside from rock formations and a few ruins out west, our very old building aren’t that old … something from the 1700s is considered ancient … whereas in the middle east, the 1500s was “new” and “old” was at least 2000. Much was a lot older than that and some of it still in use. My pottery — some of which is quite old — sort of compensates. But it is hard to explain the pottery (porcelain) and sometimes, tricky to photograph. Probably too much information πŸ™‚


  2. Back at the Armstrong home on Long Island, there’s an old award hanging on the living room wall. It’s from WVHC — received in the early 60’s. Reminds me of where it all started.
