Swamp Thing

   When this post goes live I'll be back from the semi-arid Southwest, returned from my little retreat from the Minnesota winter. The Weaver and I have a recurring discussion about where we'd live if money was no object: the desert, the sea side, a tropical island, perhaps Scandinavia. The deal-breaker for me would be any place without an abundance of fresh water. Mosquitoes aside, there is no place I'd rather be than in a small canoe in some reedy swamp, a place full of slimy life.

The primordial ooze.

A quiet symphony of aromas.

A minimalistic soundtrack.

Getting in touch with my inner amphibian.

Minnesota nice.

Emerging from the sea and being mostly water, I have the same need. I have never tried living in an oasis (other than in my own mind), but it might work for desert dwellers. It's been -25 the last two mornings. Welcome back to "at least it's a dry cold."

We were lucky with the weather- most days in Santa Fe were in the mid sixties and sunny. But lord, did I miss seeing water!

I could lend you some wellies for wading.

Got here by accident; sad to see there’s o way of following; I’ll probably lose you again.

You could bookmark it, however.
