I'm looking forward to Foscue

Yesterday's decision to head south for a while before I head to New Mexico is agreeing with me. I'm looking forward to spending time at Foscue Creek Park again. Looking through my photos from last year reminded me how much I enjoyed my stay there last year.

Kentucky has by far the cheapest gas I've encountered so far

Now there's something I thought I'd never see again. Cheap gas. Today I headed west on Kentucky's Blue Grass Parkway and then took US 31E and US 231 south as far as Shelbyville TN. That took me through Kentucky's cheap gas country where I paid $1.789. Twice. Kentucky must be raising revenue by some means other than through gasoline taxation.

Playing and Learning and Loving

..There is a Byzantium, but not the one Yeats writes about. There is another country the aging occupy and which we share with children. Its borders are formed by the animal that arises in puberty and subsides with the onset of wisdom. It is a land where seven and seventy are kin. Where there are no concerns other than playing and learning and loving. The inhabitants of this land are in no hurry. Our days are dense with experiences. We have, as the Spanish say, more time than life.
