Welcome to my blog. My name is Susan Lulic Enholm. I will post poetry, short-short stories, photography, and travel experiences. The category Butterfly Wings will contain those incidental pieces that happen to float by and need a place to land.
If a quirky sign catches my attention, and many have, I’ll take a photo and add the image to my expanding collection. In these dreary days of winter weather and hashtag political nonsense, I have a distraction for my blogger friends. Wonderfully creative messages and opinions are often nailed with only a few words. Many of these signs gave me a smile and a perspective about people and their opinions. I don’t have a picture of my favorite bumper sticker – Don’t Believe Everything YouThink. I sold the ’94 Honda Accord, and the sticker went with the sale.
Route 25 – The glory of October fires foliage into red, rust, and gold. Pumpkins and Indian corn signal the end of summer. East of the Farm-Way store, along Route 25,
I spotted a building with a Red Sox sign. I had to get a photo. What about all those pumpkins? And the calves and the hens? I thank the place whose name I missed for being picture perfect on an October afternoon.
My bumper sticker reads Don’t Believe Everything You Think. The internet attributes the words to lyrics in a Lee Brice song. Anyway, an old car in Bozeman, MT had those words stickered on the rear bumper. I was on my way to Yellowstone, and those words rang true for me. Let go of negative thoughts. Stop being judgmental and stop second-guessing. A woman in a Sam’s Club parking lot read the sticker and commented to her friend, “Jimmy should read that. It’s one frickin’ good sticker.” If only those words had reached George Bush before he attacked Iraq.
