An American Girl

An American Girl

Feeling a little of the red, white and blue inspiration on this one, for the 4th of July.

I am not much of a nationalist or one to expound patriotism, these concepts seem only to divide people, much like harping on different races. We are all one and should embrace ways to unity. The pensive expression on my girl and the way she looks off to the side in thought – may imply she is not so happy with the state of America lately and hopes for a better future.

However, I do love Tom Petty, fireworks, barbecues and the festive colors of flags.

“Well she was an American girl
Raised on promises
She couldn’t help thinkin’ that there
Was a little more to life
Somewhere else…”
