“I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back.” ~ Maya Angelou“
I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.” ~ Hippolyte A. Taine
“The life and passion of a person leave an imprint on the ether of a place. Love does not remain within the heart, it flows out to build secret tabernacles in a landscape.” ~ John O’Donohue
First light arising from the mountain summits. It felt cold earlier, though the temperature is right around 60º. The daily temperature swing has been 30-35º. And, of course, too friggin hot in the afternoons. I am always skilled and siesta-ready, since I have lived with a cat for 16 years, and who knows better about naps and sleep patterns in general. And cats are like all “Patterns? We don’t need no stinkin’ patterns!”. Cats are so weird. Though often coasting, my mind has been going from a tectonic-level shift in consciousness to a potential win for Trump, and then is when, after 4-5 years of WTF, it is now, “Oh, shit”. Hey, did ya hear there’s a new Bill & Ted movie coming out?! For my money, Bill & Ted are right up there with Cheech and Chong. Just sayin’. Wow, just wow: the name Cheech was not recognized by SpellCheck. No wonder this world is so messed up. Meanwhile, I can surmise by the light that there is a significant though light level of smoke in the air. I’ve been nearly craving a little photo expedition but there hasn’t been enough clarity of late. Yes, I’ve been way slack with the camera for months, picking through the vaults for my daily blog photos, looking for that shiny one. Kind of a Raven thing to do – dig down into the shadows in search of the Light. Yeh, that works for me. Ciao.
All is well. Goof gloriously.
