OK, to the few people who read my blog – I’m sorry for not posting. I’ve been hiking, kayaking, and drinking dollar drinks at Happy Hour at the Down Valley Restaurant. Today, I did some “housekeeping,” as our group is moving to Leadville tomorrow. (Yes, I spent an exciting Saturday night doing laundry!)
I guess I get preoccupied…
July 4th came and went with a sweet little parade in Redville, and went on a hike that commemorated fourteen firefighters who lost their lives in the Storm King Fire near Glenwood Springs, Colorado in 1994.
However, books leave me pensive. I’ve been reading “Eternal on the Water,” and it’s one of the finest pieces of fiction I’ve ever encountered. The novel begins as the body of the heroine is found after her kayak spills in class three rapids. It’s beautiful, haunting, and sad. Get thee to a library and find out the rest.
I feel grateful and happy for this “adventure.”
