Finally, a Good Dream
Just down the road from the green valley, a lazy creek winds through a vast field of tall grass. We used to call it "quack grass" because if you squeeze a blade between your thumbs and blow through it it 'quacks'. It is soft and doesn't cut you, and is a lovely shade of bright spring green. Following a path through the shoulder high grass to a swimmin' hole. Next to the creek was a fire pit, and a shack on a floating dock to lift it up when the creek was high.
Swimming in the creek, seeing fish hiding in the shadows where the bank undercuts. Grilling food on the firepit, having meaningful conversations with intelligent people, being smiled at by beautiful long haired men, laying in the sun, enjoying a homebrew or two. Didn't want to leave such a pleasant day, but dusk was gathering and I had to make sure the chickens were in for the night. Walked back up the road to the farm house, past friendly neighbors who also grow their own food. Put the chickens to bed, and sat by the fire for a bit while someone told a story. Then off to bed to sleep like the dead, much to do in the garden tomorrow. :) :) :) :) :) :) Thanks Hermit Jim, it worked!
I am a militant hippie, an conservative liberal, a practical dreamer, an empath who is fundamentally selfish, a butch femme straight chick that likes auto repair and a multiverse of other contradictions who is still stuggling to be a responsible master of our destiny.
I use lots of nasty chemicals on this blog. It should go without saying, but it is always the responsibility of the individual to READ THE LABEL and use products safely. These are my experiences. You should always take what I say with a grain of salt. If you want real tech support, visit the product's website. They have lots more highly paid lawers than I do. I will not be held responsible for someone else's stupidity, only for my own. And for chrissakes, keep your kids and pets away from this stuff.
