Isn't that a positive thought? Part of me wants to always be a child. Let me tell you a funny story. My daughter and grandson - we went to Taco Bell yesterday before Choi. An older woman came up and started talking to us. We had like 5 minutes and Kelly and I - well to tell you the truth our heart just wasn't into the conversation. We had the 'grown up' time pressures going. Not Andy - he was listening to this woman and she was telling him how she was raised on a farm with cattle, and about how her boys were in boy scouts, that she was from Virginia and so forth. I was getting antsy. My grandson sat there with his big beautiful brown eyes and long eye lashes wide open - listening to everything she said - and he wanted to go and do everything she described!!!!!!!!!! Oh to be 8 again. Dear God remind me to take lessons from my grandson. Let me enjoy and look at life (sometimes) like a child. There is so much to see.
Oh well, on the the trip with a little side bar.
On the way back from Homer there was a wood carving contest and I stopped for pictures.
This was a bear in a log.
This was a moose.
Chatty and a bear.
This is a cache. A 'cash' box. You put your food in it - up in the air - to keep the bears out - and in the winter - it keeps it fresh and frozen in the winter - just like a freezer.
Finally, my final drive leaving Homer, I saw my real moose. My first really big one. He actually looked both ways before he crossed the street.
He was a real good lookin' one.
Okay the thought I leave you with is this:
The question is not what you look at but what you see. -Henry David Thoreau
Found a good quote today:
"To me, the sea is like a person - like a child that I've known a long time. It sounds crazy, I know, but when I swim in the sea I talk to it. I never feel alone when I'm out there." ~ Gertrude Ederle
