On a back road deep in the Northeast Kingdom, some cairns along the roadside, and then this sign. I did walk around the corner, how could I not ?

Ghost Riders, Plymouth, VT

September 29, 2012

In 1948, Stan Jones wrote Ghost Riders In The Sky, which became one of the greatest cowboy songs of all time. It’s a cautionary tale on changing one’s ways, about a thundering herd of red eyed, steel-hooved cattle that endlessly roam the sky, and the cowboy spirits forever damned to chase them. He originally heard the story, perhaps derived from an old European folk tale, when he was 12 years old. The song was recorded by over 50 artists; one of the most popular versions is by Johnny Cash, a live(?) version is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxn48wSiCzg.

Guardian lions were believed to have substantial protective powers and traditionally stood in front of Chinese palaces, government buildings and the homes of the wealthy, dating back 2000 years.  They were placed in pairs, a male with a paw on a globe, representing the world, and a female with a paw on a lion cub (the cycle of life).   They’ve changed some over the years, and across cultures.
