This will not go the way that you think that it will. This is a testing time that has taken a toll on many souls, but that is not the lost that I will delve into.
I really just kind of wish that I was lost right now. Somewhere in between the canyons and the mountains. Getting that good, apple red canyon sunburn. That fresh mountain air. Stalking cows and chasing horses. Having stare downs with wild burros. That is where I should be.
It is vacation week. I was foolish enough to think that I would be able to travel, so I took the week off. I could travel. Most would frown upon it, some would not. Even ones, that I know, that were demanding people to stay home have taken out of state trips. Trips to Disney and the Outer banks. Still, I cannot bring myself to do it. Pack up and leave this state for a few days. The places I want to go, well…they are far. So far and hot (too hot for the Zone dog), gas expensive, and more than anything…right now, they will be crowded. So very, very crowded.
I don’t know what side I stand on where I stand on the virus anymore. I’ve grown tired of that dialogue. The same with other outside factors that I’m trying to ignore. I just want some fresh air, a fresh perspective, and for us to get back to living life right.
For now, I’ve been stalking birds, geese, and squirrels. I put up a bird feeder on my patio, the squirrels and geese get most of the food. It’s funny watching them, but they no longer fear me. Both the squirrels and the geese have decided that it is their patio and I have no place on it. Most days we compromise, as long as it is because I’m filling the feeder. I’ll share those photos at another time.
I have now managed to lose my train of though…shocker.
This photo, it was taken on the Utah side of the Utah/Colorado border. Deep in the heart of the canyon where you could still see the mountains just beyond the miles of canyon dirt. It was a beautiful scene. I managed to avoid the crowds, somehow. I don’t recall the time of day, but time doesn’t really matter. I like the picture and I hope that you do too.
Live, laugh, love, and let it ride.
