To escape from the true false world

It does not seem real. 17 years away from the asylum. I am happy that I escaped. Really happy.


RIP Prince

He was a true musician, in every sense of the word. A true original; once in a lifetime. And the best Super Bowl Halftime show of all time. Period. He will be missed.

The Historic First Presbyterian Church of Highlands, North Carolina

First Presbyterian Church of Highlands, North Carolina

I like taking pictures of churches and courthouses, when I go traveling. They are some of the few things that all places in America have in common. I saw this wonderful church when I was in Highlands, North Carolina earlier this year. Here is some information about this church.  According to Wikipedia:

The First Presbyterian Church is a historic church at 471 Main Street in Highlands, North Carolina. The single story wood frame church was built in 1883-85, and occupies a prominent site in downtown Highlands, surrounded by a period picket fence. It is the oldest church in the city, and was built by Marion Wright, a local master builder. It is stylistically a vernacular interpretation of Italianate architecture, which is most prominent in its belfry tower, which features a flared roof with extended bracketed eaves. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
