Still life for Siona

coffeeSakeRyeRopeScopeRock Of course, the rest of you can look as well. This is a shot taken by Matthew Carlstroem on the first morning of our Mojave trip this spring.

This is just exactly what I needed to see this morning, on a day when I feel as if nothing I do makes any sense, and my favorite non-outdoors part of my life - this here blog - serves mainly as a venue for comment spam. (750 or more removed in the last four days.)

I know, I know. I'm not supposed to give up hope until November 3. Soldier on, comrades! Death to the fundamentalist insect that preys upon the people!

Thank you, Chris.

I needed that too.

('Making sense' is sometimes overrated. Absurdity is fine. Absurdity is necessary. Its might be more difficult to rest in, but sense could not exist without nonsense. That said, I like the insanity of mountains much more than that of the city.)

Oh, huge nostalgia rush from looking at that picture. How many times have I sat at a table like that, slightly chilled by the wind, listening to the rustle of the plants nearby, smelling the sage or chaparral, holding a mug of something hot... too many to count. Thanks.

I have to ask... is that a giant peanut over there on the side of the mountain? Sure looks like one!
