Sacrifice
October 19, 2007

The last few months have been emotionally arduous with the closing of the company that I used to work for back in July. I always think that having a few months off sounds like a great idea ... and it is ... but for me, that looming threat of finding a job before the severance runs out is draining.

Yesterday, on the spur of the moment, inspired by the overcast one minute, sunny the next, day ... I decided to head out to Potato Creek to snap a "few" pictures. Okay, okay, so a few turned into 105 ... unlike someone else I could name, I'm just gonna post one for now. (Just kidding, AugieWan ... I don't have a nifty slideshow/thumbnail widget and I'm too lazy to go searching for one.)

I call this one, "Sacrifice" ... click for the larger picture.

Red leaf on a dessicated tree stump

After a three hour hike, which I hope to write about next week, I made it home, exhausted and content.

Tomorrow I leave for a quick jaunt back home to Texas for my 20 year high school reunion ... I'm excited. I really hope to meet up with some far-too-long-lost friends.

I have no idea what you're talking about... :)

That's a great picture you posted! Have fun on your trip. Say hi to the freaky-big state for me, I have no plans to visit any time this century...

Working again and loving it!

The hues in that photo are brilliant!

I regret missing my 20th. I went to the 10th, but everyone was still a little too "high school" for my tastes, though I did have fun sitting at the same table of outcasts and rejects, just like I did for lunch for 4 years.

I hope you have a great time!

I do like your "Oak leaf on blue stump" -- and I think you should post more of your photos. ;-}
