An Enlightening Afternoon

I was definitely feelin' the love of nature and energy today. I adventured to DeLuz to find a guy who had much dead wood to share. His considerable pile was on top of a hill with views I couldn't stop appreciating. The ride there was a work of art all its own. Trees lit up with golden sun, green hills, whispering willows, and a mile of off-roading that had the Jeep bouncing and laughing (it doesn't get to go off road much). I paid my $20 (what a bargain for such a delightful afternoon!) and The Wood Man left me alone up there with my thoughts as I stacked logs on my folded-down seats. What came to mind was:

Before enlightenment: chop wood, carry water.
After enlightenment: carry wood, drink water!

That is one ENORMOUS cactus!
YAY for firewood all stacked and ready for cozy evenings!
