Child's Play

A L O H A !
" If the universe is 
bigger and stranger
 than I can imagine, 
it's best to meet it 
with an 
empty bladder. "
                                John Scalzi

“A lone walker 
is both present
 and detached,
 more than an audience 
but less than 
a participant. ” 
                        Rebecca Solnit, 
                                                Wanderlust: A History of Walking

“When I look down,
 I miss all
the good stuff. . .
                          Ani Difranco

Every so often, 
I like to go to the window,
 look up, and smile 
for a 
satellite picture.”  
                                 Stephen Wright

" Man is most nearly
when he achieves 
the seriousness 
of a child at 
play. "


Don't YOU love
how we

Great advice on not looking down too much. And why it's desirable to have an empty bladder.

I hope you have no problems with the hurricanes!

How have you been with the hurricanes? I was thinking about you. Such weather we've had.

Iselle is passing chastened by our mountains. Hurricane Julio looks to pass north of isles. So far we are in great shape.

Hope the hurricanes continue to treat you kindly.
This solitary walker likes an empty bladder - and believes she is a participant.
