Years in my life have past….. Some… not too many but quite a few,
at least ½ way on the trek most likely.
Over the hill and on the way down. I thought it was supposed to
be a slide !!! >? The knees have enjoyed all the motocross and skis
they ever want to see and yet they still like to run. The long flowing
and beautiful locks of hair that reminded the young girls of Robert Plant
and other Rock Stars now have muted into tones that bring to mind
Jerry Garcia amongst the older females and circus drifters that whistle
and scream out to me sometimes up in Oklahoma or while visiting New York City.
The greeters at WalMart wink as if they have been expecting me.
Do I regret anything I’ve done in life so far ? well yes… I’ve been selfish,
irresponsible and intolerant. I regret everything else.
And yet…. “Now is the Winter of my Content”.
Having burned out many of the passions I felt inside and outside.
I can face life. I think I faced life before and sometimes I believed myself.
Sometimes I think I’ll still believe myself. I have to believe in something.
I still believe I’ll do more in ways I never expected. I’m going to take
more Aspirin then at any time in my life. If the Globe is getting warmer it
will just make my joints feel better. So I hold out hope of a fine future.
Many folks I know have told me they have hit a rock bottom.
I know what they are talking about.
I’ve hit rock a bottom too.
I Scuba Dive and hitting a rock bottom … Well… that just means success !
I want to hit a rock bottom every time !
Of course … if the bottom is made of Mud that’s OK too
I just start to dig !!!!
I've discovered that if the bottom is rocky and the rocks are basalt or slate with a little layer of silt on them, it is best to wear carbide studded wading brogues and carry a good wading staff. This method is much preferred over the alternative where you fall, bust your shins on the rocks, tear a hole in your brand new waders and break your split cane 5wt.
