A Call to Adventure

Okay, so I've finally done it. A blog. . . never really liked that name. I mean, it sounds too much like The Blob, which was a scary movie for its time (in the days before Hollywood hi-tech), or "slob", which sounds unlovely at best. I'll get over it soon, I promise. Meanwhile, welcome to my . . . web log.

A journey of a thousand miles begins. . .

The world of nature and spirit that surrounds us often goes unnoticed, unappreciated, and thus invisible despite its constant influence in our lives. This world I speak of includes patterns, textures, tracks, natural processes, moods, spirit, plant and animal relationships and the ecosystems they belong to. In short, all manner of forces that swirl within and around us. This world I am exploring also holds the simple and miraculous events of our daily existence. The ordinary becomes extraordinary when we stop to appreciate it and its implications. A chance encounter of old friends. . . a kind deed . . . the smile of a stranger. . . a droplet of water on the tip of a leaf. Yes, even a "bad day" contains gifts to unwrap, though perhaps at a later date.

So, with my feet at the threshold, my pack slung over my shoulder, and my sights set on the horizon, I take the first step. Surely this will be an adventure in the true sense of the word: "A daring and exciting activity calling for enterprise and enthusiasm".
