Another wonderful moment…

At David’s urging, I went for another ride today.  Although it is already quite chilly here, the sun was shining, and he wanted me to take advantage of it.  I bundled up and once again caught a lift in the trailer behind the tractor.  We stopped at the edge of the clearing just above the woods.  There are a number of granite ledges here, and he spread a sleeping bag on one.  I made my way to the ledge, somewhat more skillfully than the last time we came down.  And then I reclined, leg up, sun on my face.  What a feeling.L1010240

One response to “Another wonderful moment…

  1. You did seize the day and captured the moment.

    Leave you with a couple of poems from Rubaiyat of omar khayyam, (poet, not terrorist). He wrote about ” past my expiration date” thousands of years ago.

    Oh, come with old Khayyam, and leave the Wise to talk;
    one thing is certain, that Life flies;
    One thing is certain, and the Rest is Lies;
    The Flower that once has blown for ever dies.

    And that inverted Bowl we call The Sky, Whereunder crawling coop’t we live and die,
    Lift not thy hands to *It* for help—for It Rolls impotently on as Thou or I.

    Free from the hope of forgiveness and free from the fear of punishment and pain.
