Crisp mountain air brings me back to carefree days of roaming my grandfather’s forest in my youth. The stand of timber on the edge of the back pasture held a lot of my adventures. The black walnuts there were old and somewhat twisted and gave me the feeling of being in an enchanted forest from an adventure movie or novel. The ground in that area was always covered by clubmoss and other ferns and that just enhanced the otherworldly feeling. The wildlife was always rich there as well. Squirrels, rabbits and deer as well as hawks and owls seemed to gravitate there. On crisp fall days I didn’t have to worry too much about snakes and could explore without having to watch every single step. An old stand of dogwoods in the area always provided a stout staff. When dogwoods die in the wilds only the parts that are in contact with the ground tend to rot and the rest of it cures in the open air. If you find one that’s the right size you can usually just pluck it from the ground. To bring the stick to the right size all that’s needed is to wedge it between two living trees and lever it back and forth until it breaks. When the air is cool and leaves are at full color I always get the urge to return to my old stomping ground and cut a good stick so I can just head off into the great wherever looking for what may come.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
