Winter Time. Summer Time

Me and Buster tried, but... trip aborted. Too danged cold this morning to go down the road and recapture all those great shots of the creek and the snow that my CD-RW drive ate yesterday (thanks, commenters, I now know WHY). So. We have the cabin fever crazies, dear hearts. Stuck in time.

And time is something I have been thinking about lately. Time past, time to come and the growing disproportion therein for this one blogger's lifetime. Time wasted and enjoyed, often being the very same chunk of the stuff. Time left and what energies and efforst, ennui and inertia will fill it, squander it, invest it. And somehow found myself staring out the window at the blinding white morning light on snow, wandering back to the summer out this very same window on the magic carpet of memory. I am lying on warm stones looking out into space, enveloped by a different kind of time. It has been called "ceremonial time" and too few people understand it. I did, for a few brief moments in the sun, in July, in a galaxy far, far away. I'll have more to say about time, stress, and 'right living' in days to come.

This weird introspective ramble from the summer of '02 is one of my favorites, uniquely meaningful perhaps to only me, but that's okay. I suppose it is ultimately for selfish Fred-centered reasons that I write. You'll notice this entry harks back to the good ol'/terribly frustrating ol' days when Fragments lived on blogspot. I miss the colored table cells against the dark background. While you're there, should you be so inclined, pull down the page for some memorable summer pictures of the garden, stories of spiders and snakes and such. And lots of totally unselfconscious grandpa tales. It cheered me up thumbing back through these thoughts and images... like sitting down with a musty old picture album celebrating old friends and good times.

This weblog wears a lot of hats.

Isn't life a good and wonderful thing seeing as how we're all allowed more than one dull chapeau? Yours are positively spiffy.

Selfish? When it comes to personal weblogs: show me a person who swears they blog for reasons UNselfish, and i'll show you one delusional fool.

I am always wildly in favor of donning multiple (and preferably whimsical) hats!!
