Everywhere you look

Sweet Susi and I went for a walk this afternoon through the woods and by the yuppie yurts and hippie tipis. Our son, Jesse was surfing at the coast earlier today. The winds that whoomped his waves have found their way along the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Port Townsend where they blustered and danced around us.

Without fail, when we go for these walks, it puts everything in perspective. If I am bummed, or sore, or depressed, or drooling in the mucky-muck of a self piteous mantra, then a walk is just the thing. I notice the fecundity of life everywhere, from the cirrus clouds way up, to zooming bitsy bugs going about bug business, (or bug love). Like John Muir said, we are all going around the sun together, and we need to be reminded of the big picture.
