Thanksgiving Break in Madison, Georgia

As you may or may not know, i am currently a student at the University of Georgia. Although my allegiance lies with England (as that is where i spent the first eleven years of my life) i live in Madison, GA when i am not living in Athens. I spent my week of thanksgiving break in Madison with old friends, doing absolutely nothing and loving every second of it.

The New City Park

A new park was recently constructed in Madison as a celebration of the Bi-Centennial birthday of the town. It's really quite impressive and adds a lot to the historic feel of the city (for what it is mainly known for). On thanksgiving day i found myself sitting at the new park, watching passers by go about their daily business. I did this because my family does not celebrate thanksgiving day as most american families do. As i sat in the park and thought about everything that's been happening in my life recently i realized that the fountain of the new park was perfectly aligned with the sun. This was a really cool spectacle, so i decided to take a quick picture of it on my iPhone. To the right is the picture that i took. I thought this was a really cool sight and hope the you do too. If you ever are stopping through Madison or are there on a day when nothing is happening in the town (pretty much any day of the week), take time to stop and watch the people of the town go by. It really will clear your mind and help you think about your own life and in what direction you are heading.
