I’ve Found What You’ve Been Looking For

For those who have been looking where to find marine propellers and a washing machine on the same lot, I have found the place for you.

(Here is a history of washing machines. Here are facts about marine propellers.)

This lot is near the Houston Ship Channel.

As those of you kind enough to read this blog on a regular or semi-regular basis may gather, I often drive around the area of the Houston Ship Channel.

I don’t suppose this is normal behavior. Though keeping a daily blog is not normal behavior.

One thing I like about the Houston Ship Channel and the industrial areas around the channel, is that life goes on no matter how polluted the water in the channel may be and no matter how bad the air may be on a rough day.

While I don’t like the pollution, I am glad for the metaphoric point that we can still be productive and energetic even in less than ideal conditions.

There are many interesting things to see in the vicinity of the Ship Channel. Below is a picture I took over last summer of a chopped-up school bus and some tires that have been placed in boats located on a vacant lot.

It looks to me almost like it was arranged with some aesthetic in mind.

You never know where in life you will find a measure of order where at first glance something makes no sense.

Every place has value. Every place has some purpose.
