Park St. sign in Centralia, Pennsylvania.

Although most things in the small town of Centralia have been demolished, there are still some signs of what the town once was, such as this lonely and sad street sign.  Crooked and broken, it still stands to guide visitors through the deserted streets.  Haunted by the bitter memories of the past, this sign stands as a reminder that selfishness and monetary greed should not be what guides our lives.  Had people not turned a blind eye and held money above people’s lives, then perhaps this sign would not just be a guide for visitors and ghosts.

Embrace Tuesday, Mar 2 2010 

‘Embrace’ is the image of a lid of a sarcophagus in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA.  I was drawn to the touching yet haunting image of the husband and wife embracing each other.  Even in death, the love they share will carry them through whatever may lie ahead.  How many people search for that kind of love every day?  If their search was fulfilled, would they be able to navigate through life’s obstacles with more confidence and determination?  The constant and undying support of a loved one is indeed a special and wonderful thing to have, but learning to trust and believe in one’s self is priceless.
