“The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.” ~Henry Ward Beecher
I pass by this old garage nearly every day on my way to yoga at the “Y.” I stood in a Walgreen’s parking lot to take this photo. Just down the road are the homes of many of Nashville’s “rich and famous” in multi-million dollar mansions.
Nashville seems to be a city of contrasts and perseverance. I love the way old buildings and barns are left standing amidst the more urban environment. These old buildings and barns seem to serve as a subtle but constant reminder of the city’s more rural history; a history that is obstinately trying to persevere and simply not be forgotten.
