The Kitchen

1 Comment

While visiting Rowan Oak, the home of William Faulkner, located in Oxford, Mississippi earlier this year, I was struck by the starkness and simplicity of the small kitchen.  Today it seems we all crave to have large, modern kitchens with all the latest gadgets.  I have many of the the gadgets but, find myself still using the same few things over and over.  Was life simpler then?

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragement from family and friends over years I began to realize I really love it! This blog began in 2014 as a weekly themed blog with a group mainly located here in Florida. That group no longer exists so I decided to switch things up to a monthly themed blog. Thanks for following me over the years and if your new, I hope you enjoy my photos. 😊

  1. No. Life wasn’t simpler then. But, we enjoyed an innocence which allowed us to avoid complex mechanisms. No microwaves or cell phones or programmable pressure cookers (which I have yet to conquer).
    We did have to contend with hand washing dishes, taking our film to be developed and waiting for days to see how they turned out. If you could not drive a stick shift car, well, you just couldn’t drive.
    Back in the day people worried about getting sick and not having a cure. Children died from mysterious illnesses which today are cured by modern antibiotics.
    Not simple at all.
