and so it is
just like you said it would be
life goes easy on me
most, of the time

lyrics to one of my favorite Damien Rice songs....i was on a bike ride (i know, so many of my blog entries start with this, but hey, that is when i do some of my best thinking) i was on a ride the other day and it was around 6 pm and the light was amazing out and the temperature was around 75 degrees or so and perfect. I was riding on a road that travels south along the mountains, but far enough away that you can see the vastness of their expanse. The smell in the air is changing day by day and the light too and as I pedaled along and looked to my right, the mountains were purple and blue and extravagant....and I had this moment of feeling small but very alive with purpose and cause...for all i had done that day, and all i had left to do in my life and the simple act of moving in the world and breathing it all in. It was one of those moments that you don't want to forget, one of perfect contentment and awe. I think it may have had something to do with entering my photos into an art show that will be chosen hopefully to be hung up in Boulder somewhere. It was the feeling of letting go and continuing on no matter what. So what if no one likes them or cares...i did it and that is all that matters and now I am on a bike ride....I think we have to remember to leave a trail of crumbs behind us all the time...big crumbs, but lots of them...different crumbs, but the kind of crumbs that people come across and can't believe they are your crumbs, because they never thought you ate all that different type of bread, and cheese and good things that they love too...and what would make us happier than eating great things and continuing forward in our world knowing that someone is enjoying our crumbs.

so maybe that is what i felt the other day....i left some damn fine crumbs and those who choose to find them will be better for it, and what do I care if they aren't found...i am adventuring in the forest eating and laughing and taking pictures.

Leave good crumbs.

Love and understanding.

I liked this, but I couldn't help giggling to myself while picturing those who might pick up my crumbs and think, "Wow. She "eats" a lot of weird stuff." :)
Fabulous photo.
