Memorial Day – A Day of Thanks

For me each year Memorial Day gets more moving.  When I was younger, it meant off of school or work, with long weekends for play and party. Although, I still play a lot on any weekend and would like to think I am still young, I do give more thought to this holiday, Memorial Day. I often think about the circumstance our servicemen and women experienced being away from home and especially being faced with fighting a war. Mostly I believe they are just young people going to fight a war they maybe did not even understand and going to places on the other side of the world away from family and friends. Like with any decision, we all make them for many different reasons and often experience outcomes never anticipated. I am, however, eternally grateful for all military people who decided to serve and are currently serving, who work everyday to protect the life and liberties that we so enjoy and often take for granted.  You are very special people and I offer a very sincere Thank You!

Welcome July

July is the month of much celebration during the summer. The obvious holiday of  July 4th and also my birthday occurs during the month of July. I will be away for the first half of the month and plan on bringing back  images to share with you. Although I shot this image a few years back, it is one of my favorite flag images. I have a great giclée print  available if anyone is interested. You can contact me through my website susanmcanany.com.  It is for sale online at my Etsy Store.  Thanks for visiting.
