“Instead of focusing on how much you can accomplish, focus on how much you can absolutely love what you’re doing.”—Leo Babauta—

“Mystery is a resource, like coal or gold, and its preservation is a fine thing.”—Tim Cahill—

I was sort of running low on pictures to use with my articles and, yesterday, my friend Tommy Cobb donated some. I was truly intrigued with the picture included here today. Here’s the story as Tommy told it:

“A friend of mine called me one day,” he said, “and told me to go get this picture while I could. It seems that in Summerville, Georgia, in the early 1950s, a black man—we don’t know his name—went around painting murals on the walls of the schools. The subject matter of all of the frescoes was always Indians.

“As time went by, all but one of the schools had been torn down and replaced. I got there just as the equipment was getting ready to tear into the brick wall.”

The stories preserved in this picture are wonderful and amazing. The mystery of its existence is intriguing.
