For many, it is the end of the workweek and time to rest. For others, it is time to head to a second job. Regardless of how your weekends are organized, consider driving around town and marveling in the beauty of the area- especially this time of year. The above photo is part of our documenting changes around Horse Pen Creek Road. On the Battleground end of Horse Pen Creek, this lot has has the remains of a little wooden house that burned: a fireplace and some porch columns. The jury is out on the old oak tree. We'll have to wait until the other trees begin leafing out to see if it is still alive. The lot itself is waiting to be reimagined as a 21st-century, revenue-generating venue. The urban loop is about to go under Horse Pen Creek Road; Daystar Church is building church on farmland directly across from the Montessori School; so much continues to change on this road. Documenting change in one's community is fun; with some changes being more welcomed than others.
If you are looking for more concrete things to do in Greensboro this evening, remember it is First Friday and there will be opportunities for gallery hopping downtown. If you are near State Street at 6:00 p.m., Greensboro artist Liz McKinnon will read her new children's book at Vida Pour Tea. The reading promises to be delightful. Bundle up and enjoy the weekend!
