Looking from the west, there is a memorial to vets at our hometown cemetery. It appears to be a large white ship when viewed this way. But when you look at it from the east, the outlines are gently absorbed and the addition of plaques and flags and other things seem to erase the outline. Then, it no longer appears so much like a ship. I think this veteran memorial was well thought out and constructed. It is a place that honors the town’s fallen in a dignified, peaceful, and beautiful setting.
Veterans Memorial at Cemetery in Superior, Arizona
- Seen from the east – a memorial to the town’s veterans.
Yesterday, I decided that having done all of my planned chores, I would drive around my sleepy little mining town and photograph whatever interested me. Once in a while it is fun to do.
On my search I found a home that must be occupied by an artist – it is a beautiful home almost at the foot of Apache Leap (in Superior, Arizona) with all manner of artwork painted on the building, attached to the building, and free-standing in the yards. I also caught a double rainbow!

Life is not a destination, it’s a journey.
I finally have gone to the Miami, Arizona arts district and have photographed all the cat pictures I could find on the local walls. As mentioned in an earlier blog, an effort at beautifying Miami’s old business district and current arts district are worth bravos. In addition to the cats, I found waste bins that had been painted in glorious colors on different themes. I do not know who did these or if it was a collective effort, but they are good! The style is definitely different from the cat person. Some photos are included. If you see a rectangular background about 3 times as high as wide, that is the trash basket art work.
Miami, Arizona was hit hard in the 80’s when many of the copper mines shut down. Many Arizona copper mining towns were dealt a blow from which they have striven to overcome in the ensuing years. If you love cats and color, you will love these photos.
