Hi my friends. I've certainly been traveling like a fool since I got "El Correcaminos" my 17ft fiberglass travel trailer. My latest trip review is up and I encourage you to take a little trip out to Death Valley with me. Of course, you know the old saying, "pictures don't do it justice". Truer words seldom spoken when it comes to the beauty of the hills covered with Desert Gold wildflowers in "desolate" Death Valley right now.
I've been feeling a little anxious these days with the politics in the air and urgency of climate change as well as the destruction of so many beautiful places. I read a quote from Sand County Almanac that hit the nail on the head:
“One of the penalties of an ecological education is that one lives alone in a world of wounds. Much of the damage inflicted on land is quite invisible to laymen. An ecologist must either harden his shell and make believe that the consequences of science are none of his business, or he must be the doctor who sees the marks of death in a community that believes itself well and does not want to be told otherwise.”
― Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac
These are trying times my friends...
Try to forget about it for a minute and get out in nature...
For me next week I'm off to NorCal for a few days on the coast. I'll meditate and listen to music and read. Sounds like heaven, doesn't it?
This will mostly be a journal of my travels. I may include other items that interest me. Feel free to join in.
