real estate - “the bend”

these lyrics are fabulous. happy summer

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms"

/////Dingo and Hungry Horse sucking the marrow out of life

wye oak - “sick talk”

Many miles with the simplest needs, mindful and present, wondering, wandering. ||| hungry horse and dingo stopping to take it all in on Mary’s Rock

The future is hidden so why worry

Hungry horse standing high amongst the shenandoahs at Mary’s rock #ihopeyougo #adventureadvocates #appalachiantrail #thruhike

Hungry horse and Dingo, AT thru hikers, wisdom and stories abounding #appalachiantrail #thruhike #ourbreed #ihopeyougo #adventureadvocates

Above the clouds at 4000ft on stony man mountain, Virginia, just off the Appalachian trail #ihopeyougo #ourbreed #adventureadvocates

The view from Mary’s rock looking south with Old rag in the distance, Shenandoah #ihopeyougo #adventureadvocates #ourbreed

A cairn to mark a holy place // my thoughts arise, meander, settle // inspiration and fire, longing and peace // wash away with every rain

Fierce storm//always ends//faith and courage//faith and courage//the heavens open for the briefest glimpse

Open space

And, exhale

Woof #murica happy 4th @ilgattonero
