Nature and I Breathed In Time (Indian Summer)

Standard

I remember going goose and duck hunting on Lake Traverse, all by myself.

The ducks and geese would come off the lake and fly low over the haystacks up at the north end islands.

I’d climb to the top of the stacks, take off my heavy brush coat, and lay on my back, my coat a pillow, just watching them.

Even while they were within shooting range, I had plenty of shots all of the time there, so I’d just watch………… and maybe take a nap in the last days of the year, when you could do that in the heat of the sun in South Dakota.

I had no need to disturb anything while I watched clouds and the Indian Summer spider webs drift by.

……… Nature and I breathed in time. rdd

‘Smug’

Standard

For those that haven’t put me on the closet shelf labelled “remove from having to look at him and listen to him, BUT STAY FRIENDS,
you are probably like me. I don’t have all the answers but enjoy participating in the search for the correct ones.
I am not parked in a ‘safe zone’ waiting for the Golden Ladder. I am not ‘smug’.
I’m wearing my battles with decisions and thoughts, heart and mind on my sleeve.
I do not have IT made.
I trust that attempting to be, attempting to contribute, and learn are acceptable and I shall walk on.
And I am not alone. Thanks for the company and the conversation. rdd

Shroom Creatures (Photo art)

Standard

This morning at light, I was allowed to find these Shroom creatures from Pandora/ Avatar. They had landed in Kenzie’s flowers which, if you know the movie, was apropos. They came to make contact with something of Kenzie’s.
So, I caught them before they flew away back to Pandora and the ‘tree of life’ with their discovery! rdd
