I look at that picture of our country's symbol over long ago used gasoline pumps and it remembers me of all the young men and women we have sent to various countries to defend the right to fill these gas tanks with foreign gas and oil. These tanks are no useless and those that defended them may be gone but not forgotten.

An Edward Hopper painting - American prosaic common scene, fraught with meaning in a simple, nosalgic way.

A sense of time and place still resonates in the historic district of The Springs, and The Springs Market is at the heart of it all.
