The big blue truck comes to a rest on the side of highway. Back in the summer the grass was too thick for me to be comfortable that I wasn’t about to step on a snake or a nest of yellowjackets. But the cool November air and the fact that the ground has been mowed changed that. I grabbed my gear and gave the remote a quick double click so that ol’ Blue would respond with a happy beep of his horn to assure me that locks engaged. My monopod made a decent hiking stick to balance my descent down to fence. As I near the pond the breeze drowns out the noise of the highway and creates the surreal feeling of entertaining a different world. The fence is weathered and overgrown with vines and dried seed headsof wildflowers. Rusted nails hold up the woven wires that separate me from the water’s edge. The sunlight plays on ponds surface by painting a mirror image of the sky and treetops. It’s a good place to absorb the solitude and collect some peace of mind as the breeze washes away the stress and uncertainty of the outside world. It only takes a moment to recharge the spirit and renew the mind. After a few minutes of tranquility by the pond it’s time to make my egress back to highway where the big blue truck waits to carry me to another place in creation and show me yet another small splendor.
Peace be with you Friends. Good night and be blessed throughout your days.
