“You all say you want strong women, until you get one. Changes your tune — in a hurry!” True, true. However, I was raised in Texas, and I was raised around strong, independent women, think like this, equally at home with fishing and trucks as with lace and flowers. The perfect balance between tough and tender. Yes, this is prevalent in other places on the planet, but I can only speak from my own experience. Tough and tender, strong-willed, opinionated, and a force of nature. A force with which to be reckoned. Yes, all of that. Love me my Texas girls. Love the conundrum, too, poised by that one’s comment, “You want a strong woman until you get one….”
As Aries, especially birthday Aries, this holds true, and now, I’m not being sexist anymore, it’s the “You wanted one until you got one” scenario. The question I have, are you the one who wanted something — or someone — until you got that something — or someone? Or are you the one that other person wanted until they got an Aries and found you are a force of nature? I mean it in a good way, but I’m Aries compliant. I’ve been tested, I have the “I get along with Aries” thing in my chart. You don’t scare me; much respect, but no, I’m not afraid. However, I’m but one person suggesting that. Again, are you the one who wanted something — or someone — until you got that someone or something? Or are you the one that the other person wanted until that other person landed the Aries spirit?
Well, happy birthday, either way.
Over many years, I collected and collated a series of digital images from the confines of Bexar County, essentially, San Antonio, TX. What started with zero direction turned into a strange assembly of imagery, oftentimes quite quotidian. One recent image comes to mind, titled 801S. Best estimate is that it is a construction or utility crew, preparing to dig up the pavement for improvements to the underlying structure. Might be an indication of an old or new address, as quickly as material changes in the growth of a city. However, the biggest part of the designation, 801S?
