Ranger wasn't as fond, of course. He tried to climb up but then decided to just wait RIGHT THERE until we came to our senses again. We spent a lot of time among the mosquitos, tracking and finding the right routes and the optimal tree and viewing area.
It makes a terrific vantage point and word was another occupant had a very generous amount of doe (does?) walking just in front of it the next morning. I get such a deep satisfaction being just away from everything.
Everything...there is so much going on just now, isn't there? Enough to overload anyone - which is, of course, the idea. But there are breaks in the plan, moronic statements of people in power, unraveling of edges. Not that most people will notice...but some do.
Just a glance over this one and I have to admit: he does it again...great read. Perfect points. Can't wait to read it again, slowly.
I think I'll get back in the tree tonight. Maybe look at some stars, after. Remind myself that some things remain constant...
