Time Draws Near
It has begun. I am starting to feel the inevitable sadness that begins as my departure date grows nearer. I feel it coming as I sit with Mama Rio, feeling such peace as I spend my last days sitting with the Rio Grande. I have sunk myself deep within this land and it will not be an easy thing to say good-bye.
It is my life, this coming and going, and sometimes saying good-bye is harder than other times. I remember my time spent with the Santa Rosa Sound, Mt. Hood, the Tor, the three Silver Birch Trees in my Eugene backyard and so many other Nature elements I have befriended.
They travel with me as I travel down the road to meet my new friends.
