There is something about this image that sends one into a reminiscent mode, Connie!!! Actually it emits many thoughts & emotions even if one does not remember those old rural schools!!! Excellent work & capture here, Connie!!!
Hope what I just said makes sense. Sometimes it is hard to put feelings into words. #711431
