Shades of Gray from Grayson Co, TX #816 – BE THE RED CHAIR

14-08-30denison_3729a

There is an old deserted church in our neighborhood, Pleasant Grove Baptist.

It has a castle like and crumbling exterior. I have been building the nerve to take a peak inside.

Amidst the rubble, trash and decay sat this beautiful red chair where the altar had once been.

I listened to hear the stories it could bear witness to, but all I heard was the need to be like the red chair. To sit amongst the rubble. To stand firm and retain your form even when it all seems to be falling apart.

It makes one wonder, what was here and why do downtowns in small town America become semi-ghost towns? The normal response is to blame Wallyworld, but there is no blue box store  in this little burg. Just a victim of time and change.
