Tiger Eyes, by Judy Blume alvin June 16, 2019 - 2:15pm

I’m surprised that nobody I know knows the story Tiger Eyes, either the book by Judy Blume or the movie based on the book.

Probably the main theme of the book is about people who are afraid. Presumably they’re afraid of dying, and the result is that they’re afraid of living. Meanwhile, a teenage girl who has good reason to be afraid encounters these people who are afraid of life, and eventually realizes that a fear of life is no way to live. Despite a horrific thing that has happened in her recent past, she makes a conscious decision to live her life.

The Feed Store Church

I was going through some photos recently and came across this one of The Feed Store Church, which is between Alamosa and Monte Vista, a rural area in southern Colorado. I pass it when I drive back home after visiting Taos, Los Alamos, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. I thought it was some sort of a combination of a feed store and a church, but it turns out that it’s a church.
