I know nothing whatever about true underlying reality, having never met any. I am pleased enough with surfaces - in fact, they alone seem to me to be of much importance. Such things for example as the grasp of a child's hand in your own, the flavor of an apple, the embrace of a friend or lover, the silk of a girl's thigh, the sunlight on rock & leaves, the feel of music, the bark of a tree, the abrasion of granite and sand, the plunge of clear water into a pool, the face of the wind - what else is there? What else do we need? Ed Abbey
It's actually starting to feel like winter up here. The air is crisp and all anyone wants to talk about is weather! It looks like we may receive 6-8 inches this weekend! I won't rejoice until I see it, but I am very encouraged. The high yesterday was 29. The low was 15. It was 28 and hazy at observation.
I spent yesterday following Bobkitten's numerous tracks all over the mountain. I've still yet to see the little fella, but it's reassuring to know we take many of the same routes for our afternoon rambles. It further reinforces to me the conviction that we would make great friends. For what is the most apt definition of a friend? Simply put, I believe that it is someone whom I'd like to accompany me on a walk. There's no better or more intimate way to experience the world than a walk through cleansing woods with a friend.
