For the first time in a long time we’ve flipped. This morning in SE Texas the temperature stands at 37 degrees as I type. I see from the forecast email I get that the temperatures on the Blue Ridge in Boone and Floyd are almost 30 degrees higher. Folks this doesn’t happen very often. But I sure will enjoy the few days of winter (for us) that we are getting early this year. When this front gets over to the east coast ya’ll throw a log on the fire and warm your hands and think of me…it’ll probably be pushing 80 again down here.
My email from Garrison this morning contains a poem “In the Middle” by Barbara Crooker. These lines caught my attention:
We’ll never get there,
Time is always ahead of us, running down the beach, urging
us on faster, faster, but sometimes we take off our watches,
sometimes we lie in the hammock, caught between the mesh
of rope and the net of stars, suspended, tangled up
in love, running out of time.
This week’s Photo Friday Challenge: ‘Stillness’.
It doesn’t get any stiller than the desert in winter…Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas, NV.
Time to hit the road…ya’ll have a great day.
