Relics

Relics--an old tree, and granite at the top of Mount Scott...very old mountains.





In Meers--my first car was a Stude.
What is it about relics that grab my attention? The word relic comes from Latin, meaning "remains" or "something left behind." It has also come to refer to religious items, even body parts of saints. 
I guess as I get older, I'm aware that, while I'm not saint, perhaps I am becoming a relic of previous times. Thus the attraction of these relics on a trip to southwest Oklahoma recently.
I think I can afford this home in Medicine Park

  1. Hey Clark I think you mean I am not A saint. Just a little editing tip. Also don't worry your not a relic yet, you're keeping up with technology.
