vertical line Posted on Oct.01.2008 @ 04:58PM EDT by Woodsman
Without the dog, I don't know if I'd go on charger walks. Charger walks are the ones where you bust ass, mine that is, the dog just got a prickly in his paw. Had to stop and pull it out for him, slowed us down some for a sec..

I love the way mushrooms burst up through the road grade. Mushrooms rule! They are just so, um, I don't know, noble?

Ok, I'm gonna  misspell a wrod.

There was a single scarlet leaf which seemed to speak to me, all by itself, tumbling down the center of the dirt road, towards me, as if... it was there, all alone, just for me.

vertical line They don't seem to need me to. Plus, mushrooming is a science. I just have a garden, for dumb me.

vertical line You don't notice the gradual warming of the air from the mountains to the valley but once your in the valley ..WOW its still hot . But its the trip up the mountains that  I long for . The turning of the leaves doesn't happen here so your only warning its October is the faint smell of a few wood burning fireplaces....I love that smell and don't get it too often . At 6500 feet above sea level the great  Ponderosa Pines began and the harsh desert is all but a faint memory as the lush scenery , fresh air , smell of pine tar and the gental breeze sings through the tree tops . Its like a mothers hug rocking you and singing child hood memories .The water tastes like water and the sunshine is welcome . I sit and watch a few grasshoppers hop .


Hey Everyone ..IM still kickin " ) Glad to see your all still around .

vertical line So on the long dog walk today, a few pretty cool things happened. One was the color of leaves, kind of connected me to a feeling of the importance of nothing special... wait a minute..  my nose is dripping...

kleenex?

I just knocked something off he shelf, was on top of the kleenex box...

Man, it was windy on the dog walk. The clouds are so massive.

Got rained on, and then the sun was shining, like several times, I'm still cold.

But there is this guy I know, be we aren't  friends, cuz I'm a loner. And on my walk he is driving his car on the road, and wants to turn into someone's driveway, where I am crossing, just at the same time. So I looked up at him, smiled (more like a smirk) and waved (kinda like brushing a fly away). I think I was kinda nice, but not... I mean, I could be nicer.

I'll have to write about the stop sign, later, it'll come up again, have turned it into a ritual spot. gotta go

Woodsman.

A volcano is or can be volatile.

A volcano is also a pressure release valve. Very necessary now matter how we want to look at it.

This society has become volatile.

You might just be a release valve.

Calm lava.

Take it easy.

Enjoy reality.

No need for eruption or the fear of little hot lava spill.

Enjoy reality. Enjoy being the calm slow lava. Fill the gardens with new top soil.

Enjoy reality. Enjoy you.

vertical line I love the long slow hill climbs. So, do the dogs. "Mush!", I never say, don't need the abuse.
