421. September 28th….On the plains……..

Thoughts from the "Tinman"

“The Plains” 2010

“It is the fight alone that pleases us, not the victory.” – Blaise Pascal

I camped a night away this weekend…saw friends I’d not seen in years and was quenched…….felt a sense of….”Ahhh”…….. that place somewhere between a great meal….and the perfect combination of elements that make a deep dead sleep happen…it was really the drive up…the time I was able to spend with friends and the drive back that made a day away seem like a step into the lawn sprinkler in July….something I needed much more than I realized….

it is the time away that makes the time here so incredible….the shot of inspiration by so many others who are dedicated to their trek…sort of a buzzing of the hive….and being a part of that…noise making is really good…..for me….

I’m finding “easy” takes a great deal of getting there to finally call it that….it’s alot like learning to swim…..it takes determination….but there’s a great deal more to make it work well….

This morning when I awakened…I was hoping when I opened my eyes…it was…high on the plains……and the breeze was in my face……


“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” – T.S. Eliot
