I have been thinking about all that is lovely, all that is ethereal… On our trip to visit family and friends this week over Thanksgiving, my longest-known best friend Janet, her daughter Sara, and I went Geo Caching out at a water reservoir in Auburn, California. Even with only being 1/3 full, the water and surrounding countryside were beautiful! A family was there and their dog chased a ball into the water over and over, bounding out with unbridled enthusiasm. Here, he is resting between his trips into the lake to retrieve his beloved object…
Sometimes life is this big bridge…
Crossing this enormous foot bridge,
took courage and ignoring vertigo!
This was the second bridge of the afternoon,
about a football field in length.
The first was only 25′ long or so.
This rushing stream ran underneath the first.
Getting back together with friends
whom I hadn’t seen in several years
We have known each other since high school,
over 30 years now.
And, it always amazes me that
no matter how far away we are,
how long it has been
since we have spoken,
we fall right back in-step,
as though we have never been apart…

Finding another item under the end of the big bridge, and adding a little toy moose!
Life is easy, life is good, we can ignore the evils out in the world, turn introspective and just be.
