Wilderness Remembered

The Earth has music, for those who listen.  ~  Shakespeare

~

haunting music of the wind

drifts over the wilderness

the only roof, the stars

the desert is bleak and beautiful

a fine place for outdoors living

not as comfortable as a patio

wilderness imagination

The clearest way into the Universe is through the wilderness mountains.

~

leave the city of your comfort

travel into the wilderness of intuition

walk upon the hot virgin dirt

and let free your deepest imagination

no more pain degradation hurt

and your soul is one with all creation

deep in the lonely barren desert

You could walk out of Zion Canyon

but I wouldn’t like to try it.

Snowy Lake Tahoe

This is a cool picture of Lake Tahoe by Rhapsody.

I have a friend who wants me to take her to Lake Tahoe, not if it’s snowing I won’t.   Give me a little sunshine and it will be a great road trip.

Golden Skies

A golden sky above a lonely road in the far west.

break away

to a lonely road

under a golden sky

California Flowers

Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.

In early June this year I will be flying out to Southern California, and then on to Arizona for a week or so.

One of the things I like best about SoCal is the beautiful flowers ~ the like of which we don’t see here in England.

the issue is,

finding a travelling companion

seize the day

do every act of your life as though it was the very last act of your life  ~  Marcus Aurelius

January in England and nature is at its lowest ebb of the year.  The ground is hard, the sea is damn cold, everything and everyone seems to be moving in slow motion.

Even I’ve been feeling lethargic this afternoon, and considering doing nothing more productive than dozing while the TV plays in the background.

That just isn’t good enough for me.

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.  Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land.  There is no other land, there is no life but this.  ~  Henry David Thoreau.

Feeling bored, listless, lethargic, and filled with ennui is just a state of mind, and if I’ve learned anything in recent months is that you can change your mind, even your state of mind.

Instead of dozing, bored in front of the TV, I’m going to go out into the cold and take another walk.  At least that will damn well wake me up.

Some say that boredom the natural state of being for mature guys.  And, that most men don’t have the energy, brains, or motivation to find anything better to do than watch sports on TV.  All I know if that I’m not like most men; I’m a cool guy living a great life.
