Rows and rows of homes, cut from the same cloth, pine, bricks, mortar, copper, ceramic. Surging with the same electrical currents. All full of humans with similar anatomy and physiology. Yet how many histories reside in this neighborhood? Literally millions. Histories of families built on histories of individuals built on the history of the world. Post Oak Subdivision, Kyle, Texas, Earth.

(Incidentally, this is as well manicured as anyone will ever see my back yard.)

How Times, They Change

I realized as I was sitting at the stoplight of 1626 & IH-35 that I had taken that photo before... but you'd never recognize it.
On October 30, 2006 I posted a photo of a lonely dirt road that lead to a ranch house.

Well.. that land has transformed. About the only thing you'll see that is the same is the water tower in the background. This is going to be the new Seaton Medical Center... and there's a Lowe's Home Center there... and a Wal-Greens is coming... and more.

Wow... how times have changed. Two and a half years. I can't believe I'm so lucky as to be the person who just happened to come across a "daily photo" thread in 2006 and think... "Hey, that might be cool for Kyle." I've been able to take so many photos of the progress and growth this city has had in the last 3 years. Neat.

As a welcome to our church, some unnamed people in our congregation decided to "flock" the new pastor of the Kyle United Methodist Church in Kyle. Thank God, Pastor Barbara Aziz and her husband, Karim, have great senses of humor and like flamingos.
