Now we live in an age where a homeless man can walk into a public library, sign up for a free e-mail address, get a blog account, and write a manifesto that can change the world. The power of ideas, expressed simply, is unmatched – and we live in a time where those tools are more accessible to us than ever before. Even the lowliest of us.

Tractor (Robert Cargo Folk Art Gallery)Jimmy Lee Sudduth beat us all to the punch. He found his free tools, and the power of his expression opened new worlds to him. Let us not squander our opportunities to do the same. We don?t even have to get our hands dirty.

A new star in heaven burns brightly tonight.

Thanks for sharing this, Ike. We all need reminders of what amazing tools we have that we take for granted.
