Start at Stop

This is the first in a series of blog posts here on The Rest all featuring stop signs I see in my travels. The project all started on a terrific blog (I am a huge fan of this one) Musings of an Aspie. Folks have been posting photos of stop signs from their neighbourhoods to the blog to share with a child who is really interested in the subject. I’ve been so lucky in my life for the times when someone helped me with something I was interested in and I thought I’d try and help with some photos too.

I’ll create a category here on this blog titled “Stop” and clicking on that category will automatically retrieve all the posts featuring photos or other posts from The Rest with stop signs as their feature. I’ll label the posts too with the street names and locations for a little more cross-referencing goodness.

For some terrific background, you really owe it to yourself to check out the blog that started it all. The post itself is fast becoming a personal favourite. Please scroll down to read through the comments for the post, the conversations and exchanges in the thread spinning from the post are such a beautiful example of just why we blog, why we share and how collaboration and community online should work. So, start here:
An Open Invitation to Infodump

Then check out the blog post that spun from that one:
Stop Signs for Tommy

  1. You’ve hit the nail right on the head. Reaching out and discovering there are people who not only deal with the same things I do, but who think in the same way and who don’t think it’s strange or inappropriate at all… it’s amazing.

    Thank you for sharing your pictures. They’re beautiful. And the title “Start at Stop” is making me grin. 😀

    • Thanks, I enjoyed reading your comments. I was quite proud of the Start at Stop title. I couldn’t agree with you more, I find it extremely refreshing to be a part of a greater community is wonderful. Wish I’d become as content as I am now, earlier on.

      Great to hear from you.
