I'm just so NOT in tune with cultural normalcy. Forget the stores; I spent my Black Friday in the woods. It was warm (about 50F) and sunny. Maggie and I both donned blaze orange and headed for Pine Valley Pathway again to hike the inner loop.
We saw nothing unique. I was going to say "nothing amazing," but we did see amazing things... the natural world simply IS amazing.
I liked the sun on the white pine needles... like stars in the tree! (Christmas lights?)
Lost Lake showed a different character today. Instead of being sparkly, it was pensive.
But here's my favorite. Is this a green fried moss egg? An alien spaceship that has landed? Maybe it's a wooded hill atop a palisaded plateau. Don't you just want to know what's under that hump?
P.S. Facebook can be sort of awesome (I can't believe I am admitting that). I stumbled across a fellow from the town and church I grew up in. He is a few years younger than I am, but he's now the Pastor of Ministries at LifePoint Church in Reisterstown, MD. Check out his blog if you think you might be interested. A Leader's View.
We have done a bit of back and forth catching up. A few years age difference seemed really a big deal in high school. Now, not so much!
