For ten years, drivers between Lincoln and Omaha dealt with the 42-mile interstate widening project on Interstate 80. Starting Friday, construction workers will remove final concrete barriers to open the full six lanes for travel.
Sometimes I can’t stand sitting in my house during a sunset. One of God’s most beautiful pieces of art is being presented outside and I can’t bare to miss it! That’s why I took a drive out to Pioneer’s Park yesterday in order to watch the beauty of it unfold across the protected prairie.
Lincoln is so lucky to have Pioneer’s Park! It’s preserved nature allows us to glimpse at original Nebraska beauty. One walk through the park on an autumn evening is enough to clear your mind and enjoy the present moment.
This was one of those magical friday nights in Lincoln’s Near South neighborhood. It was the day before the Huskers’ opening football game, which always adds a bit of excitement in the air. There was a guerrilla theatre production going on in a vacant lot near my house. The town had swelled by tens of thousands of people for the football weekend and I stumbled upon a soccer game being played at a local elementary school. The guys played until the sun went down.
Now that I live i New York, I miss these fall Fridays in Nebraska a lot, but being able to look through my archive and see photos of these nights is enough to close my eyes and relive them.
