What Pegman Saw: Different Times

Lod, Israel

An old tree grows in ancient Lod in Israel: from Google Maps

Different times
Different places
Different people
With different life-courses
So many ways to live a life
So many triggers to needless strife.

  6. Well done, in so few words. I’m currently reading a book called The Over Story ~ your Pegman reminds me of that.
