Here is a picture of the rock I sat on for quite some while a few weeks back as I watched the sun descend over the North Cascades. Not too exciting I guess, but I do not find many opportunities any more to be in an environment devoid of all the unnatural external distractions. And to watch the sun chnage the sky from deep blue to azure quickly followed by total darkness of a star-speckled sky.
As the welcomed rains return, the yard seems to breath a sigh of relief and the smells of life return. Even in my tiny tenth-acre lot that is beginning to evolve into quite a garden. I've read it takes five years for a garden to evolve, and mine is doing well in its third year.
Not much more to say.
