By the time this piece is posted, I will be at the deer lease. I am setting it to post at 5:00 AM. At that particular time I will be hiking in to my blind where I can sit quietly and wait for the sun to rise. Why am I doing this, heck I don’t know, I guess just to make myself feel connected to the blog. In some small way share my early morning anticipation with my readers. There is something special about the early morning darkness of the great out doors. The crisp fresh air, morning due, or maybe even a little morning frost on the ground. To me, there is nothing better than an early, early morning hike through the woods. You get such a wonderful view of the stars and moon, and the startlingly bright and bold sunrises.
This weekend will be for my rest and relaxation. I plan on hunting every morning and evening, and possibly getting some fishing in during the middle of the day. I’m sure there will be the friendly game of poker between my hunting buddies, brother in law and his son, and myself. Of course you can’t have an outdoor excursion with out the faithful Hibachi, for a quick little meal here and there.
One advantage of hunting, is there is a considerable amount of waiting. Plenty of time to think and contemplate, maybe reminisce a little. I am looking forward to the weekend, especially since I missed opening day due to everything that went on last week. It’s always nice to get back to your roots, and recharge the old batteries. If I get some extra meat for the freezer, so much the better.
I am taking my ancient lap top, (an old 64 MB, slow as molasses computer). There is no internet connection though, the darn thing really is not a very good internet computer anyway. So I’m only going to use it to compose a few items of writing, and see how the refreshing feel of the wide open country affects my creativity. I’m hoping for some interesting ideas for my fiction stories. Perhaps some character development or plot and scene building. What better place to come up with strong rich content than as far away from the everyday worries as possible.
While your reading this post, I’ll be thinking of you, and will try to send you some of my peace and quiet. Wish me luck, and I’ll respond to any comments when I get back.
