Ah, the Muskingum River. River of my dreams. River of my Home.
Maybe not the stuff of love songs or Hollywood movie franchises, but certainly the river of my memory.
|This is the Bridge. The one my school bus (and later, my own car) |
went over twice a day. I know this bridge like the back of my hand.
|Under the Bridge (Go ahead. Begin singing the Red Hot Chili Peppers' |
song. I do. Here. I'll start..... "Sometimes I feeeeeel.... ")
|Perfect place to start a family. If you're a bird. And you can make|
your house out of mud. And don't mind the sound of semi-trucks
barreling overhead at all hours.
|The search for the perfect pebble begins. Huh. Not so easy here.|
These guys are kinda craggy. And small. Hmmmm....
|... Oh! Look over here! It's LOVELY!|
And... it is at this point that I forget about pebbles and start photographing like mad. I live in the DESERT, you know (sorta. Close enough).
|I could build a cabin and just live r.i.g.h.t. here. I'd be happy.|
You know... If someone would bring me groceries and stuff. And
maybe DVR "Weeds" for me. That kind of thing.
|Ummm... yeah. We don't grow moss like that in California. Nope. Not at all.|
|There's something witchy and wonderful about these tree roots.|
Something permanent and tenacious. Something very cool.
|And then there's THIS guy.... Like a giant yawn, he is. |
The strange thing was that it's still alive. Still breathing.
And the hole/cavity runs about 4 feet deep. Cabin? Who needs
a cabin? I could just live in this tree....
|I adore the bark pattern on this maple. Adore it. Spotty! La-La-LA!|
|Would have been nice if the monarch I was photographing|
on this blossom stuck around... but I suppose he had other
things to do, places to go, nectar to suck....
|Blurry Bug! But the antenna we so freaking cute, I had to|
post it. I think he was a'smilin' at me. Hard to tell,
though. With a bug.
|Muskingum River Curious Pebble. Now residing on my mantlepiece.|
NO, that's not my mantle. That's a PIANO. Piano's don't hang very
well above fireplaces. A simple rule of decorating you'd do well to follow.
MY! I'm snarky this afternoon!
