Benedicto: May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you -- beyond that next turning of the canyon walls."

Edward Abbey


Spring is early this year. We have our first tornado watch of the season.

Dorph, I'm so glad to read your post. I've been thinking about you and missing your "Friday Musin's". (Hope that's not too impertinent of me!) :>)

We're really just getting our first touch of winter: only 1" of snow, but it was topped with ice. No fun to drive in--so I haven't.

Edward Abbey really is a poet writing prose, I love this quote, Michael..Been hanging out with writers and poets on Facebook and it rubs off
