Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

More from Cheraw

More pictures related to this post can be found here.
I've been riding by this sign for years when traveling to and from Cheraw. Every time I see it I get a big kick out of it, because though it is a spelling mistake for the Palm Reader who uses it to advertise her business, I doubt most persons would understand that to be a real word - an old word, but a real one none the less. A physic is a medicine that usually purges, it can refer to - in Elizabethan English, to the doctor some one who heals/cures. In the metaphysical, I suppose knowing one's fortune in a way can act as a Physic, because knowing what is to happen would be cathartic and purgative in some way. Any who...

After the Christmas Parade in Cheraw yesterday I went to the Dizzy Gillespie Birthplace town park for an even sponsored by Obama '08. It was a quaint little BBQ on a chilly day in Cheraw, a handful of people were scattered around the park. Quaint is an appropriate word for the event. It wasn't a sumptuous packed affair that would be held in Cheraw in honor of say - John Edwards. Granted Obama hasn't been to Cheraw, and something tells me he probably wouldn't, but I certainly commend the organizers for holding various forums and events in support of him.

Later in the evening I headed out to Rawtown Coffee (I'm still pleasantly surprised that the people of Cheraw have it within them to support a coffee shop, big hand to Cheravians!) for the musical styling of Jason Beckham. He was pretty good, his music especially one song he played I'd love to watch a train) is very soulful. Here's a video from the 40 Watt in Athens GA of another song. He said Nashville rejected him because his music was to vague. I believe they may mean too deep.

After that I went home went to bed and hit the road and that's when I pulled over in East Camden to take the above picture. I'm sure that was a sight to see as I pulled off the main highway practically straddling the sidewalk to take that picture. Oh well, it was worth it, I've been telling myself that I was going to take a picture of that and finally did.
