On drive to work recently, I saw this promo for Fort Worth’s mayfest.  Painted in yellow on the banks of Trinity River just north of FW. You can see the Courthouse building in the background, and yet another sign of future growth (construction crane.) Mayfest is next week. We missed the other well-known  Arts Festival last week. These two back to back events make Funkytown a happening place!!!

Check out the website for Montgomery Plaza, located 0.5 miles west of downtown Fort Worth.  This picture was taken on a rainy day, but a great cool plaza with shops, residences, and eateries.

I see you…

FW police elevated lookout

Seen at the gym I frequently visit, this FW police lookout station monitors the area of recent flurries of break-ins. I was a victim few days before new year’s eve last year…The idiots are quite brazen considering such a high traffic area.

camelspotting: Trophy Club/Westlake

camel-trophy

Driving through Trophy Club, TX,(few miles north of FW)  I found this camel sharing some green time with local buffalo. (not anything to do with Camel Trophy Club) I don’t know who owns this land, what kind of camel it is, or where it’s from…

*thanks to commenter,K,: this is Ross Perot Jr.’s land and camel. *

*** The image to the far left taken from online site: Godspeaks.com. The image to the right of a nontheist billboard campaign taken off Hwy 35W few blocks before Meacham Blvd heading north, ironically, near the Fort Worth Gentleman’s Club ***

9/11, the economy, cancer, death of innocence(or innocents), etc…can lead one to side with the billboard on the right.  A lighthouse in trouble waters, being saved in a catastrophic event, unexpected fortune, successes, happiness, etc…can lead one to side with the ubiquitous God Speaks billboard campaign on left. (The size of the photo has nothing to do with level of importance, for you naysayers out there, I just couldn’t find a God billboard near my daily commute. Maybe God’s true “billboard” is the sun, the sky, the moon,  the air you breathe, etc.) I’m not too sure where Fort Worth falls in the Bible Belt, but I do wonder have we “slacked off” on our faiths in some supreme being? Depending on your views, and convictions,  how would (or could) you truly define true “faith?” Is it a fallacy, or is it a truth? A timeless question indeed….
