State Fair was Fairly Stated, as... Fun!

The County exhibits are always my favorite, or one of my favorite parts of the fair. Here are some of the noteworthy offerings. I thought these people did great work on these displays of some of their Counties best attributes.

I tried to show the county name in the photo and let them speak for themselves.

The portraits here were done with jelly bellies, thats such an interesting medium I had to try and show some of the work. The bear was in the works right then so it can be seen how it was done. I love the colours and the compositions that a fair presents, it's so much fun to try and capture with the camera.

What About John and Kate?

I get so tired hearing about a gerrymandered relationship that is only dragging out for ratings and sensationalistic headlines. It's ironic that my own relationship gone awry was a John and Kate, too. I moved on without the glamour of a breakup in everybody's face. I see the daily headlines and I cringe, how many more days can these two and whoever is pushing this keep interest in the sordid disrespectful selfish and unrealistic union alive and worthy of voyuers attention? Think of the kids, and how they will someday have to realize their parents acted like fools. If their drama is prolonged past the point of pointlessness as mine has done I am certain all viewers would be lost.

Love is A Two Edged Sword

I hear these types of sayings, but I only really understand them in my own experience. I know why they withstand the test of time as I go through my heart rending situation. There's a summation of countless emotions being felt, so many other people have gone this way, too. We are all together as we keep alive the meanings and definitions.
So we are never really alone.
"It is better to have loved and lost than never loved at all."
Hearing that doesn't make it any easier, but it is comforting, nonetheless.

My Heart Was in Her Hands...

A year was all we had,
But in reality it was a handful of Days
I gave my love freely, with both hands
I couldn't hold on to it anyway...
I would do it all over again
If I get to keep my friend
