So Long Ago
My Grandmother taught me many lessons
About God and mercy and understanding
Our lives have many Chapters, just like books and Bibles
Oh how I wish life was like that again
My Grandmother, and Mother both lived that easier life
Oh life was hard, but it was easier
Back in the day when telephone numbers and addresses
Even important days were all kept in a
Address Book with the reminder section
Today 90% of the…

It's hard to believe that it's that time again..
Last year we had a storm that made running the Hood to Coast miserable.. This year it is warm and sunny and by the time they all (1050 groups) arrive here on the coast on Sunday it will be a balmy 70's with no rain in sight..
Son has been running…Continue

Decided to head for the beach today
Tomorrow would be crowded
Since everyone is heading down here for their last hurrah before school starts..
My dogs finally had a day where they did not have to fear big dogs or strangers approaching them..Then we returned and discovered our friends in the BlackBerry bushes.....…
I want to tell you this story. It's going to be short.
Grey Antelope liked to sit and beat on his drum and tell stories, especially to children. One evening he told a medicine story about being at a lake side somewhere and talking to the fish, praying and singing when all of a sudden thousands and thousands of fish poked heir heads out o the water and greeted him.

I have a hard time catching up to Clif's mind sometimes even though I've been following him at halfpasthuman since 06. Interesting stuff to wrap your head around. Today's essasy:
Time has it's hooks in you.

I have left the desert
to live in forests, under green trees
ruminate, drinking rose petal tea
my sipping cup, salal leaves
always I am watching the beauty
of birds, the wonder of skies
I dream into the disappearing
imagining beyond any ordinary heaven
with wings gathering gentlest winds
soft amid fog and cumulus clouds
coming, going, disappearing
how brief this precious flight.
