March

Don't much care for March.  At 6200 feet or thereabouts, March is tug and pull, and back and forth. The days lengthen, but tease you with the warmth, followed by snow.  Some March's are worse than others, and if we're going to get hit with a "shut the whole town down blizzard", March is the month it will happen.  Or not.

Just thinking about March brings to mind one of my favorite movies of all time, Jeremiah Johnson.  There are two schools of thought on this movie.  You love it like I do, or think its one of the most boring movies ever made.  Not a lot of neutral feelings on the movie.

As to March, Bearclaw has some opinions on March.  At about 1:33 in the clip they utter my favorite lines.


Imagine a life where you're not sure what month of the year it was.  Hard to fathom. In this day of "constantly connected" to everything and everyone, maybe maintaining radio silence is not such a bad thing. Instead we incessantly check our email, hoping for...............what is it we're hoping for?

Much Sadder News

What caused the tears to roll down my face this morning, splashing on the keyboard, has nothing to do with "The Game".

Exquisitely beautiful writing, but words thousands of daily readers dreaded.We all sensed it was coming.

Eulogy

I doubt you'll read this James Lileks, but it's words like those that inspired me to start this silly little blog, and you've managed to do just what the craft of writing should do................draw us in and involve us in your story.  You are my hero.

Rest in Peace Jasper.................

I'll hold my Bessy a bit closer tonight.
