…Emptily Happy after All

March 31, 2013

All the Homeless

Without enough food to eat,

Who unfortunately also

Have nowhere to sleep,

Yet these stay

Emptily Happy after All.

This is the video montage, music courtesy thus far of R.E.M., that goes along with the story of the same title, Emptily Happy after All.  I recently found a very tranquil and thus now Favorited and treasured Vagabond Hiatus spot along the Oregon Coast.  While out there relishing in my solitude throughout a recent major holiday season, I walked along the coast many evenings to bask in the crisp of an Oregon sunset…

The day immediately after the first holiday leading up to the Major, I strolled down along this road, curious about what a “Happy Camp” looked like.  All these photos were taken along that road and beach during that one night’s stroll. The intent was not to avoid any human beings, there just didn’t happen to be any human beings there  as that fine Oregon fall day faded to it’s nickname, Black.

Hence, the inspiration for the story and this video montage.  A recent statistic from a post in the Google Community, Homeless in America, states that for every Homeless person in the U.S., there are 24 empty homes.  I guess I found my one group of those 24.

I hope you enjoy, can take the opportunity to also puruse the story, and once again,

thank ya kindly in advance fer hikin along the trail with me.
