Random Shots. September 5, 2009

Life is ever changing, and I’m feeling myself swept up in currents which aren’t necessarily about blogging.  If I’m scarce for a while, it might be that I’m busy consolidating my life, moving to a new place and diggin’ my favorite time of year.

I’m prejudiced, of course, being a Child of Autumn.

Here are a few shots from this past week.

Mount Negus on a typical morning, with the river rising up its flanks:


A Purple-flowering raspberry with Goldenrod and Spotted jewelweed:

Laurels at lakeside, taken earlier in the year:


A bear running from an unwitting pic-nicker:

…do you see the guy behind the tree?  He just walked up from the river and surprised this yearling bear.

And lastly, a carpet of White wood asters surround a pic-nic table at Mohawk State Forest:

Gotta run – I have mountains of wild mushrooms to dispatch.  I’ll let you know how that goes.

Mmmmm…mushrooms! 🙂

Amazing how much those pics look like Alaska in the summer.

Good luck on the move and even better on the mushrooms! If you find too many; well I would be happy to take some off your hands!

I have not been here in awhile and as always, I am richly rewarded when I show up, due to the generosity of your words and photos… all of which come straight out of your heart.

Moving? Change? I better find out what is up. I hope you are well and I send you my every good thought, wish and prayer even if I am not here too often!

Very best wishes and prayers for the sundry currents in your life and for your well-being and happiness. We’ll expect reports later on more than mushrooms.

Wow, you three. You’ve been among my traveling companions since I embarked on this virtual journey. To have you all notice this post is one of the most gratifying things I could hope for.

Fran, as you framed it, I’m not a frequent reader, life has taken me elsewhere. I think of you (and Paul and Vicki) often but don’t get around to appreciate your contributions to the ethos as often as I might – I’m comfortable knowing that that’s just how it is, yet comforted knowing that you’re out there, sharing my perspective, working on the things which mean the most to me.

I’ll let you know how things go as I do this move/transition. We’re neither of us kids, and both settled in our insular ways, so I’m expecting the melding of our lives to be an adventure.

That having been said, you’ll be among the first to know how it all shakes out.
