Small town America

a street with cars parked on the side of a building: The population of Hamilton, Mont., is 4,728, up more than 10 percent since 2010. Retail outlets fill Main Street, which is bracketed by mountain views.

A small vibrant town within the beautiful skyline of Montana, these type of towns are the forgotten towns here in America, as with most and from all the hype built up about the big cities like New York, these small towns are the back bone of America, as they have been thriving for many years and will continue to thrive in the future of America.

There is so much nostalgia within these small towns, they are a great place to visit, to truly see how they have become to thrive for so long. The beauty of the mountains all around you just add even more ambiance to the feel of the small town. Within this picture you see no big chains, as the smaller one person ownership stores cover the sidewalks of the street, this is what makes these type of towns so special, simply because the big corporations and the big chain stores and restaurants, haven’t had a chance to come in and ruin all the true beauty of this great town.

Just like in the movie First Blood starring Sly Stallone, when he walked down the main street of town with the mountains all around him, only difference here is, this is reality and truly as beautiful as it gets. We all can go visit places like this and walk the sidewalks of main street, experience the ambiance and the special bond of all the towns people. Definitely as you walk down these streets you will notice a huge difference, in the temperament of the people, compared to like………….. The streets of New York city.

Back in the days of when small towns like this was the norm, America was truly great and we all respected each other, we all watched out for one another, we all helped one another, now within this society we are so far removed from one another, that we don’t know who is around us anymore. You go to your job and it’s every man for himself as others think nothing of back stabbing you, so they can get ahead of you, drive down the street and everybody speeds past you just to get ahead then hit the breaks to slow down. Neighbors………… I remember when they all where close friends and all looked out for each other, now you don’t even talk to the ones next door, let alone know them.

Yes these small towns still exist, just that they are far and few between, as in today’s world it is all about the corporation, as these corporations have complete control of us all, unlike the days of yesteryear. Now unlike in a corporation, which is controlled by a board of directors, the businesses in this small town and other towns like it, are owned by an Individual, which makes them a lot easier to walk up to, the ones who make up a board of directors, all they want is for you to make them money, for as little money that they give you for a days work, this is where the miscommunication of this society starts, plus the fact that our so called leaders, within the walls of Washington DC, have their hands out for the kick backs and then vote any way that the corporations want them, which now we the little guy are the ones who totally lose out. Even a CEO of a corporation is controlled by the board of directors and if he doesn’t run the corporation the way they want, well then…………… He is replaced for someone that will.

I prefer small town America over the corporate world America that it has become, a simple place in a simple life, true you still had to work hard moving forward within the small towns, but at least you could still benefit from the hard work, as now within the corporations, the only ones who benefit are the board of director’s, the rest of us are left on the outside looking in. The sad reality of the society for which we live, but it is never too late to change this reality for the better of us all, yes it may be hard to fight against the corporations, as they have all the power right now, but the fight will be worth it, with a huge benefit to us all being, we all can get back to truly knowing one another again, become one once again, as we come together in unity, to once again help each other and bond with each other, without attacking each other, with every turn we take, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” The CEO is really not the Boss, it is the board of directors with all the power today”

” Small town America so beautiful and so much more relaxing, over the corporate world of today”

” Basically we all work for free, while the corporations make all the cash”

” Time for us all to work together without attacking one another anymore”

The colors of Autumn soon to be upon us once again

Autumn Leaves           The cool brisk mornings, that give way to the warmth of the afternoon air. This is what Autumn is all about, also with the bright colors of the leaves that are changing their colors, then fall to the ground and strip the trees bare, With all the bright vibrant colors of the leaves, mixed with a beautiful sunrise over the landscape, now your talking of a beauty that even a picture can’t capture just how beautiful it really is. The rays of the morning sun reflecting off of the dew on the green grass of the meadow, the bright rays of the sun bouncing from one colored leaf to the next and as the sun moves up away from the distant mountains, warms the air of the cool brisk mornings.

The season of fall, also known as Autumn. Truly is the best season of all four of the seasons. With fall all the plant life begins their exhaling process and gets ready for the cold of the winter, as in the spring the plant life does their inhaling process, to get ready for the summer season. The exhaling of the tree’s is what gives us the beauty of the bright colors of the leaves, plus it gives the tree’s time to ready themselves for the deep cold of the winter months. Yes most of us don’t like the season of winter, cause within this season we see nothing but the work of removing the snow that may fall and the deep cold that has us layer up to keep warm. When you look beyond the work and the layering up, truly see the winter for what it is, now you can see all the beauty that winter brings as well, okay maybe not the bright colors of fall.

The season of fall also brings a crispness to the air and a time for us to enjoy and unwind, like going to a real Country fair, that highlights all the Agriculture and what it takes for the Farmer to cultivate all the Agriculture. It is also maple syrup season, as the sap flows steadily out of the maple tree’s, there is nothing like fresh maple syrup and I especially like the maple sugar candy also. If your a sport’s fanatic than it is also the start of Football and Hockey season, to me the only two sports that matter of all the sports. There is a whole lot more to the season of fall, other than thinking of the winter, that is right around the corner.

With the season of fall we also have to turn the clocks back one hour, this gives us less sunlight and what makes winter seem longer than it really is, but come spring that hour gets returned and we can have longer days to enjoy outside. The winter months may have shorter days, but this is no reason to stay inside without enjoying the outside air. With each season there is plenty beauty that goes with them, you just have to go out and explore, to see all the true beauty around you. For me it is the fall that is the best season, as others have their favorite season for them to enjoy? The fall may be looked at as an ending, cause all the leaves fall off the tree’s and plant life seems to die for the winter, but if you can see a new beginning from all the endings, than the fall will never be looked at as an ending, only the start of a new beginning, for everything that may breathe the air, that this planet of Earth provides for us all.

” there are four seasons within a year on the calender, we each have our favorite season that makes us the happiest on our journey through life”

” we may lose an hour on the clock of time in the fall, but if you truly see all the beauty around you, you never notice the difference in time”

” the crisp cool morning air of the fall, gives way to the warmth of the afternoon sunlight for us to enjoy”

The many Adventures throughout our Journey of life.

As we all walk a path along our Journeys of life, let us not forget the many Adventures that make up each of our Journeys.

These Adventures are what makes us who we are, they protect us from any harm that may come to us, as they make us better and stronger along our Journey, these Adventures happen in many ways and there is no end to them as well, we may take some of these Adventures for granted, as they come to us in the form of a vacation from our place of employment, true we may have earned this Adventure from our hard work at our jobs, but what we tend to overlook is, this is our way of re-charging ourselves to move forward stronger and better along our Journey of life, the Adventures of our vacations come to us in many forms as well as the Adventure itself, but we must never forget the true meaning of our vacation Adventure and that is for us to re-charge ourselves, to be better and stronger along our journey of life.

An Adventure is also the path we choose along our Journey of life, we don’t know where this path will take us and we also don’t know what is in store for us along this path, as each path through life has it’s own twists and turns, which makes this Adventure important to us in many ways, we need to be strong through this Adventure and ready for whatever that may cross our paths, this Adventure should be top priority in all our lives, but somewhere along our journeys, we have lost all sense of any priority within our lives, as we lose our priorities then our Adventure through our journey of life becomes clouded with doubt and misinformation, this is one Adventure we all share, as we walk our paths along our journey of life.

Some of us may take an Adventure that others would not even think of, these Adventures help keep us physically strong as well as mentally strong, they are in the form of Trekking through the mountains and the wilderness of the homes of our wildlife on this Planet Earth, one Adventure that is on my bucket list is, the Trek along the Appalachian mountains, they stretch from Mount Khatadin  in Maine, down to Springer mountain in Georgia, it is over 2,000 miles and is a Trek that not only will keep you physically strong, but spiritually strong as well, by spiritual I mean, it will keep you in touch with the true feeling of self and that is how God wants us all, so we can love ourselves and spread this love with each other.

There are many Adventures that make up our journeys through life, these Adventures are what makes us who we are and become better and stronger in our lives, when we all are better and stronger, then anything is possible throughout our journeys, not to mention the fact that we will always love ourselves and show our true feelings and emotions, when we love ourselves it makes it very easy to share this love with others along our journey, instead of working harder through the cloud of doubt, then sharing the hatred we see in this Society now, we are all on an Adventure through a journey of life, we also take many Adventures inside this journey, we just have to see the true meaning of each Adventure, so we all can be better and stronger, show our love of self, so we then can share this love with each other, as we walk our paths along our journey of life.

” The Journey of life is an Adventure with many Adventures on the inside of the Journey”

” As we walk our paths along our journey of life, let us never forget the many Adventures that make up all our journeys we walk”

” There is no textbook that guides us along our journey of life, only the faith in Jesus as he to walked a journey here with us and the hope that we follow each adventure as he would of wanted us to”
